Peanut Butter Spinach

This is my take on Chef Lesego Semenya’s spinach dish in his book Dijo. Read about this brilliant young chef by clicking on the section Cook & Book on this blog

200g baby spinach

50g butter

200ml sour cream

45ml peanut butter

salt and pepper

a handful of peanuts or cashew nuts

Bring some water to the boil in a saucepan. Add the spinach for 15 seconds! Yes, you only want it to wilt!

Drain the spinach in a sieve and pat dry with kitchen paper to get rid of excessive moisture.

Melt the butter in the same saucepan and add the spinach to it. Stir for a minute or so.

Add the sour cream and peanut butter and stir to incorporate all the ingredients.

Season with salt and pepper and allow the sauce to thicken while stirring.

Remove from the heat, scatter the peanuts or cashews over the spinach and serve.
