Heat oil in large pot on medium-high heat. Add onions and sprinkle with pinch of salt. Saute onions until translucent. About 7-8 minutes. Add tomato paste and saute 1 minute. Add boiling water, salt and pepper and mix well. Add spinach in batches and cook on medium heat until spinach is wilted and sauce has thickened. About 10-12 minutes. Add lemon juice and stir.
