Recipe Tips

  • To make this recipe gluten-free, simply change the plain flour to gluten-free plain flour.
  • You can use fresh or frozen spinach. If you use fresh spinach, make sure you wash the spinach and remove the stems.
  • The mustard is optional and can be left out of the recipe. You will lose a slight bit of flavor, but the dish will still be fine.
