Mince And Spinach

Mince And Spinach

Let’s start off by stating the patently obvious – this dish isn’t likely to have chef Thomas Keller banging on my door, frantically begging me to hand over the recipe any time soon.

I am profoundly colourblind.

No doubt you’ve probably encountered those books consisting of page after page of  patterns of coloured dots, designed to weed out those of us with defective cones.

I don’t even make it to page three.

There’s nothing worse than trying to plan your next meal when you’re still stuffed full from the previous one.

We’d both overindulged at lunch – Mrs. Paleovirtus on Schnitzel, myself on delicious Corned Beef Hash leftovers.

Honey and Walnut Crusted Salmon

Yet another dish that could easily do the business as a poster child for Paleo.

Jam-packed with taste, supernaturally good for you, and yet ready in a jiffy, its one potential drawback is the  cost of the main ingredient, pushing it into a “weekend special” slot.

Clan Paleovirtus was on the road yesterday, finally heading home after an extended Christmas Holiday.

This means, amongst other things, that I had a day off from kitchen duties. I could have pulled out a camping stove and a wok on the train, but I think it might not have gone down terribly well with the on-board personnel.

“What, another spinach based salad? You posted a spinach salad recipe only yesterday, Keith!”

Yes. Yes I did.

Regular readers,  however, may recall how much I deplore waste, and I had the other half of a pack of spinach sat in the fridge looking for a dish to make its home. I also had the remains of a red cabbage whose time was nearly up. No-brainer, really.

In Stanley Ellin’s brilliant short story “The Speciality of the House”one of the characters, Laffler, is trying to describe his favourite dish, Lamb Amirstan, to his friend Costain…

Laffler remained lost in thought for a minute. ‘If,’ he said at last, ‘I were to give you in my own unstinted words my opinion of this dish, you would judge me completely insane. That is how deeply the mere thought of it affects me.’

I know exactly what Mr. Laffler means. Some dishes just do that to people.

Quick Spinach and Mushroom Curry

Once again I was left to my own devices food-wise, with my womenfolk out and about taking care of “any other business”.

As so often is the case,  when I’m cooking for myself alone, I like to keep things as simple as possible.  I had a good cargo of mushrooms going begging, spinach leaf in the freezer, and tinned tomatoes in the cupboard.

I also had a new batch of curry powder to play with. This particular curry powder had made its way to our home in Southern Sweden all the way from Durban, in South Africa, via a colleague of Mrs. Paleovirtus in Copenhagen.
