Everything old is new again and a vegetarian recipe to prove it

If you are at all like me, then there are blogs and Websites you trip across, mean to bookmark, then lose only to stumble across at some later date with as much delight as you would banging into an old friend at a street corner.

The Old Foodie is the quintessential version of that for me.

The Old Foodie is a food history blog written by an Englishwoman living in Australian. Utterly fascinating, it is a charming and delightful and sometimes revolting (how could they eat that?!) romp through our food history.

And, best of all, it sometimes has recipes.

Here is a wonderfully simple, totally enticing vegetarian recipe. So when your mother tells you to eat your spinach, you will now be inclined to say "yes."
Vegetarian food recipe: Bombay Spinach
Boil the spinach in salted water until tender; drain and chop fine. Fry 1 chopped onion in 2 tablespoonfuls of butter; add the chopped spinach, a pinch of pepper and curry-powder. Cover and let simmer five minutes.

If we are bound to repeat history . . .

Then all I can say is yum.
