Such a brilliantly simple and clever idea. Fast, easy and very tasty. Everyone I have served this too has asked for the recipe. Thanks Miriam!

Very nice indeed.l loved the taste of spices, gave the spinach a wonderful flavour. We had it on Christmas Eve with other canapés and it was lovely. Feels like nothing you buy out there in supermarkets!
