2 persons

  • 8 cups spinach
  • Fresh cracked black pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon smoky paprika
  • 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ cup red onion
  • 1 twist from the salt grinder
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs

1) Hard boil two eggs. Set aside to cool.

Tear spinach and place in large bowl, season with fresh cracked black pepper.

Measure the vinegar, water, sugar, and smoky paprika into a small bowl and give it a good whisking. Taste and adjust the seasonings to suit you.

Finely chop the red onion and add with the olive oil to a small pan that has been heated over medium. Give a stir to coat, add a twist of sea salt, and heat with minimal stirring so that the onions become well browned and a bit crispy.

Pour the vinegar mixture into the pan with the onions and heat on high until you achieve a vigorous boil.

Drench the spinach with the boiling dressing and toss. The amount of the spinach which may have seemed excessive before is now reduced as the spinach "wilts".

Place spinach mixture on a plate and top with slices of hard-boiled egg. Serve immediately with a slice of nice chewy whole grain bread.
