Spinach florentine

Spinach florentine style with spinach from the urban garden. One of my favourite dinner ideas to eat vegetables in a delicious way.

This year I decided to add two small raised vegetable beds at the terrace. Each planter is 80×60 and divided into 4 spaces, so I decided to plant all kind of different vegetables. It makes me extremely happy to see things grow from seeds. It is really rewarding to take care of them to get your own vegetables. You will not get much, but making some kale chips or spinach from homegrown vegetables is pure happiness for me.

Spinach are ready to harvest them so I made some Spinach Florentine with an egg for dinner. Quick and easy to make, hope you like it!
