Spinach with Fried Garlic and Caramelized Onions

Submitted by: NJOHNSTON64


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1lb fresh baby spinach
    4-5 large cloves of garlic, peeled and chopped
    1 small onion, sliced thin
    1 whole dry red chilli
    1/2 teaspoon white sesame seeds
    salt
    1.5 teaspoons Sesame Oil
    fresh lemon
    Roasted peanuts, crushed (as garnish)

Directions

Wash the spinach well, drain and tear the spinach roughly.

Add sesame seeds and oil in a pan and let the oil heat up (this flavors up the oil); add the red dry chili and the chopped garlic. Fry till the red chili darkens and the garlic turns light golden. Add the sliced onions and saute at low to medium heat till the onions are light brown/lightly caramelized. The garlic with turn darker while the onions are getting brown, and that is okay.

Add the spinach and the salt and stir till everything combines. Cover and cook at low heat till the spinach is cooked and all the water is absorbed.

Sprinkle fresh lemon juice.

Serve as a side.
