Spinach with Raisins

1/3 cup raisins

2 lbs fresh spinach

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 garlic clove, finely chopped

3 tablespoons pine nuts

salt and pepper

croutons, to serve

Put the raisins into a small bowl. Cover with boiling water and let soak.

Rinse spinach well, then shake off surplus water but do not dry the leaves. Into a large saucepan, put spinach. Cover and cook until spinach wilts. Uncover and cook until excess moisture has evaporated. Chop coarsely. Drain raisins.

Heat oil in a skillet. Add garlic and pine nuts and fry, stirring occasionally, until it begins to color. Stir in spinach and raisins, season with salt and pepper and cook over low heat for 5 minutes. Serve with croutons sprinkled over the top.
