It was very good and substantial which is the type of texture I prefer. if you don't like curry, I think you could substitute a little garlic or tarragon to enhance the lemon juice. It was a bit time consuming as you had to wait for the spinach to wilt; might try it with frozen spinach next time. the recipe makes a healthy quantity, certainly enough for two dinners and a lunch or two.
