Nadia Pendleton's ricotta-enriched side dish makes a tasty accompaniment to spicy stews

Method

1. Rinse the spinach to remove any grit. Place in a large bowl and cook in a microwave for 1-2 minutes until wilted. Alternatively, place in a medium saucepan and cook over a low heat until wilted. Drain in a colander.

2. Meanwhile heat oil and butter in a small saucepan, fry garlic, ginger and chilli.


3. Take off the heat, stir in the spinach, ricotta and freshly chopped parsley.

Ingredients

  • 1x250 g ricotta cheese
  • 200 g spinach
  • 2 tbsp softened butter, mixed with 1 tsp paprika, 1 tsp cayenne pepper, ½ tsp turmeric
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cm ginger, peeled and grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped (optional)
  • small bunch parsley, chopped
