Portugal’s Esparregado de Espinafres (spinach mousse) contains the ideal balance of velvety textures and earthy notes. The dish offers up layers of flavor without masking the essence of the greens. At its peak in springtime, spinach is an ideal choice for Easter.
But don’t stop at spinach. How about chard (nabiça)? The Portuguese are huge fans of these leafy greens and throw them into soups, or into their “Esparregado.” Summertime is when these babies start to bloom!
If you’re needing additional culinary support for Easter, why not try Portuguese roasted kid, grilled fish, kale soup or carob cake! Or better yet, come to Portugal and receive a personalized culinary tour designed just for you!
