Tips.

You can add some chillies in case you like spicy food; as an alternative, you can add a teaspoon of Hot Chilli Peppers Spread.

Pitted Black Olives in Brine are perfect for this recipe, because their flavour enhances the taste of spinach.

If you like rocket, you can use it instead of spinach and just add it without cooking it.
