Then pouring water into the pot and steaming, that is, put a metal container with holes, it is mostly an addition to all pots in the set that comes with the purchase.

  2. Put the spinach and steam it for 10–15 minutes, on moderate heat. As soon as it softens, then turn off heat and put it aside for cooling.

  3. Peel the potatoes, wash them under running water, cut them into small cubes and cook for 20 minutes in salted water.

  4. When you strain the potatoes, then set aside 200 ml of the liquid where the potatoes were boiled.

  5. Pour olive oil into a large pan and wait for it to heat up on moderate heat.

  6. Add the diced potatoes, fry for a few minutes until they brown a little, then add the butter.

  7. When the butter has melted, add the finely chopped garlic and stir ingredients well.

  8. When the garlic releases its fragrance, add a little salt, black pepper and softened spinach. Stew with a little liquid from the potatoes for 7-10 minutes.
