Pairing spinach with a main dish?

Journey | Nov 15, 2013 12:09 PM

I've been watching Master Chef (UK cooking programme). One of the professional chef judges, John Torode, is always going on about how iron-rich spinach doesn't go with whatever savory main dish the contestant has cooked. (Sorry, can't recall the dishes.)

Beyond standard recipes using spinach, how do you know how to pair it? Is there some sort of "litmus test"?
