Potato and spinach comfort food

leave a comment »

Potatoes are one of the most comforting foods around. I don’t know what it has in it, but it just makes you feel mellow and warm inside. Combine that with the soothing vibes of rosemary and turmeric, and you have a pretty dish on your hands.

Spinach is one of those strong flavours I talk about which help make food a bit more interesting without meat. The spices will help as well. If you want extra protein, I can imagine black olives will be a great addition to the dish, though I think it doesn’t need them. Enjoy!

Ingredients, before foodifying

What You Want To Make This Food Out Of – for two people

4 potatoes, medium-large (about as much as you need to half fill a frying pan).


A big bag of spinach – 300g

About two tablespoons of mustard seeds

Two heaped teaspoonfuls of turmeric

1 garlic clove, finely chopped or crushed

A branch of fresh rosemary, to give a gentle flavour


Black pepper

Half a teaspoon of cayenne pepper (depending on the strength: we want a barely-noticeable lift).

Optional garnish: hair.

Chop the potatoes in pretty cubes about the size of dice. Don’t peel them, just give them a rinse (assuming they’re of the already clean sort). The nutrients and flavour of potatoes are all in the skin – try it and see how your body feels after eating, you’ll probably notice that you feel a greater sense of vitality. Those are the vitamins, they’re good for you 🙂

Heat some oil (preferably olive oil) in the frying pan with the mustard seeds, turmeric and garlic, until they brown. Add the potatoes then, and fry until tender. Add the rest of the herbs and spices and the salt.

Now pile on as much spinach as you can fit in the pan and fold it into the mixture so that it gets to the heat. The spinach will quickly wilt and take up less room, whereupon you can add more spinach to the pan. Continue until all the spinach is cooked.

Serve! 🙂
