Papas con Espinacas (Potatoes with Spinach)

Papas con Espinacas

I want to share a simple, but delicious side dish with you today. I made these Potatoes with Spinach along side grilled salmon and it made for a wonderful and easy meal.

Enjoy it!



(4-6 servings)

  • 2 pounds medium white potatoes, skin on and halved
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 pound spinach
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes


  1. Put the potatoes in a pot, cover with water and bring to a boil over medium heat. Salt the water and cook until the potatoes are tender.
  2. Drain the potatoes and set aside.
  3. In a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the oil, onion, garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion begins to soften, about 1 minute.
  4. Add the spinach and red pepper flakes and cook, about 3 minutes. Add the potatoes, salt and lemon juice.
  5. Stir and cook about 5 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper. Serve warm

    I think I’ll have to try this with a roasted chicken. I know you used salmon but for some reason I think I’d like a spicy roasted or grilled chicken paired with this. I like this post Erica!
