Almond Spinach

Almond Spinach - Recipe | Spice Trekkers

Spinach and almonds have long been a great match, be it in salads, stir-fries or even soups.


  • 1 large Spanish onion, chopped
  • 4 Tbsp olive oil or coconut oil
  • 1 tsp cumin, ground
  • ½ tsp black pepper, ground
  • 1 Tbsp smoked paprika or Spanish paprika
  • 2 cups cooked spinach
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 3 Tbsp sherry vinegar or lemon juice
  • Salt to taste
  • ¼ cup slivered almonds



  1. Put onions and oil in a pot on medium-low heat. Cook until golden (5-10 minutes), then add spices. Cook for 5 more minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, chop spinach.
  3. Once the onion is cooked, add spinach and garlic to the pot. Stir well and simmer for 3 minutes, the time it takes to heat the spinach through. Incorporate salt, vinegar and almonds.
