Popeye’s not the only one who benefits from a generous helping of spinach. The delicious dark veg is full of vitamins and nutrients and has even been found to promote eye health! Turns out the sailor man really was onto something… This recipe also includes walnuts, which are also great for pregnancy.
Time: 10 minutes prep
Good for: Vitamins A, C and K, folate, protein, fibre and omega 3
75g hard cheese (the original recipe calls for blue cheese, which is unsafe to eat during pregnancy, so substitute it for your favourite hard cheese)
4 tbsp crème fraîche
100g baby leaf spinach
50g walnut pieces
• Mash the cheese of your choice, crème fraîche and some seasoning in a bowl with 50ml water until smooth and pourable.
• Put the spinach onto a serving plate, scatter over the walnut pieces and drizzle with the cheese dressing.
And that’s that! Bon apetite!
