Spinach with nuts, fresh cheese & Balsamic vinaigrette

Spinach with nuts, fresh cheese & Balsamic vinaigrette

The leafy green vegetable we chose for this salad was Popeye's favourite food but, unlike the famous sailor, we prefer to consume it raw instead of having it coming out of a tin! The right time of the year for spinach is from November until March, when it is in season and can therefore deliver its richness in terms of nutrition at its very best: vitamin A and C, copper, potassium, zinc, calcium, phosphorous and lutein (which is good for your eyes) among others. Try out this delicious dish, where spinach meet cheese and nuts, all topped with a yummy vinaigrette!

The result is a delicious creamy soup, easy to make and quite balanced from a nutritional point of view.

This recipe couldn't be more representative of culinary Italian culture: broad beans (long described as 'the poor man's meat' because of their high protein and iron content) are widely used, especially in the south of Italy; sun dried tomatoes, originating from the smart thinking of the farmers, who had to find a way to preserve the produce for colder seasons; and Pecorino Romano, a product made from sheep's milk, mostly produced in Sardinia.
