Spinach Tortilla with Pine Nuts

This classic Spanish omelette is a recipe that deserves a place in any cook’s repertoire.

The caramelized onion is utterly delicious, making a beautiful contrast with the richness of the eggs — while the vibrant spinach lightens the whole dish and the sautéed pine nuts contribute their luxurious nuttiness.

But no matter how tantalizing the ingredients, the most important thing with a good tortilla, at least in my book, is that it be moist. Inverting the tortilla and cooking the second side for only seconds will guarantee a beautiful result — worth both the trouble and the slight shakiness of your hand if you’ve never attempted the maneuver before.

This spinach tortilla is ideal for lunch or a light dinner, served with a simple side of crisp greens. But I love serving it tapas style as well — where it is equally delectable warm and at room temperature.


For the spinach

  • 1 Tablespoon sea salt
  • 12 Ounces spinach, stemmed

For the tortilla

  • 3 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large Spanish onion, quartered and sliced thinly

  • 1/2 Teaspoon sea salt
  • 8 large eggs, preferably organic

    Spinach Quiche with Cheese and Pine Nuts

    My Spinach Quiche with Cheese and Pine Nuts is easy to make and perfect for brunch and parties! It also makes a perfect dinner. You can eat this Quiche hot and cold because the crust won’t go soggy.

    A Quiche is a savoury kind of pie from France. It is traditionally eaten warm as an Appetizer or with salad as a main dish. There are classic quiches like Quiche Lorraine (filled with bacon, creme fraiche, and eggs) or when you add onions it will become a Quiche Alsacienne. It’s common to drink a glass of wine with your quiche or “Federweißer” which is a very young wine.

    All kinds of quiche have the basics in common: Pie crust is filled with an egg and milk custard which is mixed with all sorts of extras like cheese and vegetables.

    My quiche version uses eggs, whole milk, Austrian mountain cheese (any kind of mature cheese will do this job), cream cheese, onions, frozen spinach and pine nuts.

    Yes. 2.71 mg per 100 grams. This is not a high amount, but spinach is a good source of iron, calcium and Vitamin A.

    The benefits of spinach can be found in my extensive Spinach 101 found here.

    There are three types of Spinach

    • Savoy: Dark green, crinkly, curly, sold loose in fresh produce department and is the hardest to clean.
    • Semi-savoy: Less crinkly, and easier to clean.
    • Flat Leafed: most often packaged, easiest to clean, most consumer friendly.

    The recipe for Garlicky spinach is pretty straight forward. I slice garlic thinly and do a very quick sauté in olive oil. After about a minute I add walnuts to get them nice and toasted. Add a little salt, swirl around and then add my spinach. Lower the heat and sauté away. It takes mere minutes to get the spinach wilted. Serve immediately.

    Garlicky spinach goes well with steak, over a pizza or flatbread, as a tartine, over pasta or mixed into rice. You could also use the leftovers to go into your favorite soup.

    Sauteed Spinach with Lemon and Pine Nuts

    Place the pine nuts in a skillet over medium heat. Stir and toss until lightly golden, 30 to 60 seconds. Remove from the pan and reserve.

    Warm the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the garlic and cook 10 minutes. Add the spinach and toss with tongs until the garlic is mixed in with the spinach and the spinach just begins to wilt. Add the lemon zest and pine nuts and toss well. Season with salt and pepper.

    Spanish Style Chickpeas with Spinach and Pine Nuts

    I love creating this meatless meal for my family. Just last week my grandson was spending the weekend with me. He asked what we were having for dinner and I explained what I was cooking. He asked if I wouldn&rsquot mind going to the market and buying him some fresh spinach. I was very surprised at his request. This is a child that refuses to eat anything. Everyday we have such a hard time getting him to eat.

    I asked my grandson about his request and he explained that he would rather have the spinach and chick peas that I made for dinner. He also asked if I would make him a pan of spinach with chopped garlic and sautéed in olive oil. I was very pleased at his request and headed off to the market. This is a child that won&rsquot touch a vegetable on his plate. But now he wants spinach.

    If you have a picky eater such as my grandson, try this delicious recipe to change their minds.

    Sauteed Spinach with Lemon, Garlic and Onions, and Pine Nuts

    I have recently started getting a pound of organic baby spinach leaves, every week or two. We like spinach, yet… it is a lot of spinach to get through with only Joel and I. But when I came up with this recipe, it was hardly a hardship. We love this recipe. The lemon brightens the flavor, the onion adds depth, the garlic flavor, and the pine nuts texture. I think that I could just about eat this everyday.

    But don’t think that I have always liked spinach. Oh no. I still clearly remember my first introduction to it.

    I was probably around five, and we were living in Southern California at the time. My mom had fixed a nice dinner for us and served it to us in the more fancy dining room. I got through my dinner fine, until it came time to tackle a HUGE (or so I thought) bowl of steamed spinach. It was unsightly. Even worse then that, every time I tried to eat it, it would gag me.

    For some reason, my mom ( who usually only made us eat a few bites of something we didn’t like) decided that I wasn’t doing my best. So I was left alone in the dining room, after everyone else had finished, with this huge bowl of spinach to get through before I could get the ice cream that everyone else was already enjoying.

    My little tanned self sat at that table starring into a bottomless bowl of spinach that gagged me and wondered what to do. I certainly couldn’t eat it. Logic began to kick in.

    I started very carefully spreading out the spinach leaves throughout the room. I put some all along the table, at every setting. I was sure that my mother would just think that people were unusually messy that night. I climbed under the table and hung it on the rungs of the chairs (unusually messy again!) . I even placed some on the bookshelves, though I don’t know how that was to be explained. I thought as long as I spread it out thin enough, my mother would never notice….right?

    Wrong. When my mother, who had finally pitied me, came in with a bowl of melting ice cream and found what a mess I made, I was doomed. She did somehow notice all of the spinach hanging throughout the room. It was quite strange. It thought that I had done it so cleverly.

    But thank goodness, I have learned better ways to prepare it, and developed more of a taste for it at the same time. So now a very untanned, Kimi can quite happily eat this recipe, and enjoy it too. Spinach truly is a wonderful food.

    You will feel like you are going to make a ton of food with so many cups of spinach leaves, but when cooked, it melts down to nothing! My husband and I eat this all by ourselves and usually wish for more. A very easy and yummy way to eat a lot of spinach.

    Sauteed Spinach with Lemon, Garlic and Onions, and Pine Nuts

    A few Tablespoons of olive oil
    A half of an Onion, chopped
    One garlic clove, minced
    5-6 cups of Baby Spinach Leaves, washed and dried
    A half of a lemon
    1/4 cup of pine nuts
    salt to taste

    In a large saucepan, heat olive oil over med-high heat until hot. Add onion and saute until soft, and slightly browning (about ten minutes) Add garlic cloves, and stir in.

    Start adding in the spinach leaves, heaping them in, just leaving enough room to stir. If it is to much for your pan, add until full and allow some of them to wilt (making space for more) and then add the rest. Saute until wilted, and then take off of the heat. Squeeze a little lemon juice over, toss the pine nuts in, and salt to taste. Serve immediately.
