4 cups fresh spinach, rinsed & drained 1 T olive oil 1 garlic clove, minced salt & pepper to taste lemon
Heat oil in pan. Add garlic & saute for 30 seconds or just fragrant. Add spinach & flip with tongs until it fits in pan. Put lid on pan & cook a few minutes until spinach is fully wilted. Take lid off & continue to cook until excess water is cooked off. Add salt & pepper to taste. Squeeze one half a lemon over spinach & stir.
This was a perfect accompaniment to the Baked Chicken with Garlic and Sun Dried Tomatoes (Chef Meg's Makeover) recipe on this site!! I mixed both recipes together and sprinkled a little parmesan cheese over it. I served it over a half cup of pasta as I had a few extra calories that day. :)
I didn't have fresh, so I used frozen, bagged. Even my boys (14 & 10) loved it. My teenager even wanted more - unfortunatly I had only made 4 portions, not knowing what type of reception it would receive! I'll definitely make this again.
I was already making this pretty much exactly like this (no lemon) so thanks for allowing me to find this so I wouldn't have to build the recipe myself to see what I am consuming. Loves me some sauteed spinach!
this is one of my favorite ways to cook and serve spinach. The only thing I do differently is to toss a large, whole clove of garlic and heat long enough to infuse the oil with flavor. Healthy and delicious! Thanks.
