Warm spinach salad w/ melted cumin cheese

This is a lovely light winter dish. What made this dish stand out for me was the AMAZING cumin cheese that I sprinkled on top of the warm veggies. I got it from my local cheese store, The Cheese Cave. But any herbed cheese would probably work well.


How long will it take in total? 15 minutes

What’s needed? 

* a handful or two of fresh spinach

* quarter red onion 

* quarter zucchini

* sunflower seeds

* cumin cheese (if possible)

* olive oil 

* sea salt & cracked pepper

* cumin powder (if possible)

Chop the zucchini in half long ways, then into thin slivers- Chop up the red onion into thin slices- Chop up the garlic.

Add a little bit of olive oil (about 1 tsp.) to a frying pan. Feel free to be generous, as the excess olive oil is going to be the ‘dressing’. Sauté the veggies on med-high heat until the zucchini is soft and the red onion almost transparent (spice the veggies with salt, pepper, and cumin powder to your liking).

Add the warm veggies to a bowl of spinach, and grate the cheese on top to your liking, and sprinkle the sunflower seeds as well.  Top it off with some cracked pepper and sea salt.
