How to make this recipe

  1. In a bowl, pour 2 tablespoons of the olive oil over the bread. Turn the bread to coat, then let stand until the oil is absorbed. Tear the olive-oil-soaked bread into small pieces.
  2. In a food processor, finely chop the spinach. Add the bread, lemon juice and garlic and process until well blended. Add the remaining 1/4 cup of olive oil and process to a fine puree. Scrape the puree into a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Serve at room temperature.

Suggested Pairing

A light, fruity Tocai from Friuli is versatile enough to drink alone or pair with a variety of appetizers.
