Nutritional values

This dish is great for strength. The nests provide two and a half times the daily requirement of vitamin A and more than half of the daily required amount of iron.

If you prefer leaf spinach from the freezer (you will need about 700g), you only need to defrost it. After defrosting, squeeze it out very thoroughly, just like the fresh spinach, so that the nests hold together well.
