Spinach with Nutmeg and Lemon

spinach lemonI was thrilled to see the section on side dishes in October Martha Stewart Everyday Food. I get tired of making the same old veggies the same old way. Spinach with Nutmeg and Lemon caught my eye since I love spinach.

This is a very simple recipe  – you just wilt your spinach, add salt, pepper and nutmeg. It says to serve with lemon wedges (and never says to add lemon juice) so I added it into the dish itself. The lemon juice intensifies the spinach flavor, but I found it to be a little too sour for me. The nutmeg is a nice flavor to add though. As you can see, some of my spinach turned brown, which was really weird. I may not have checked it over as thoroughly as I should have.

    Thank you for all of your reviews from the October issue! We seem to have the same taste in recipes…I’ve also got my eye on the pork rib ragu and the chocolate pudding cake with the caramel sauce. Tomorrow I’m celebrating my youngest daughter’s 4th birthday with family and I am making the “Weekend Dinner” from the September 2007 issue of Everyday Food…Macaroni and Three Cheeses, Sauteed Green Beans and Mushrooms and Garlic-Roasted Tomatoes. I’ve made this menu several times….a definite keeper!
