is so delicious, tasty and easy to make that any one can create it . We must not forget how good for you it is. We all know that spinach has lots of benefits and it’s full of calcium, protein, and rich in vitamins and minerals along with plenty of other types of goodness – so, of course, it’s very healthy for you as it is cooked with no fat at all.
This is a typical Cypriot dish that they often make in spring when the spinach is in full season. In Cyprus, black-eyed beans are called Louvia Mavromati, or Lovia Me Lahana but I just call them Louvia. Many people grow their own spinach in the garden to enjoy in this delicious soup, but the most important ting to remember is to serve it with a squeeze of lemon and a drizzle of the best extra virgin olive oil. As we all know that Greece produce superb olive oil. Some add lemon juice to the dish when cooking to stop the black-eyed bean from going black, but I prefer that cloudy earthy colour.
To get the best flavour, try to use fresh home-grown spinach from the garden large – lovely and leafy – not the packet types that you get for salads – they will melt and disappear as soon as they are added to the pan! If you use the home-grown leafy varieties, you will get to see and taste the spinach properly. You can eat this soup either hot or cold, it’s so tasty you can please yourself.
