Ingredients

    1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    2 cloves garlic, gently crushed and peeled
    10 ounce package fresh spinach, thick stems trimmed, leaves washed and dried well
    salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
    juice of 1 lemon half

Directions

Over medium heat, melt the butter with the garlic in a large saute pan until the butter is golden brown and smells nutty. Make sure the butter doesn't burn.

Turn the heat up to high and add the spinach, in batches if needed, flipping and stirring until the spinach is just barely wilted, about 1 minute. Remove the pan from the heat. Remove the garlic.

Season the spinach with salt and pepper, and a squeeze of lemon.

Toss and serve immediately.

  • I have do a similar dish using kale, and a lot more garlic that you keep whole, essentially roasting in the same pan before adding greens. Kale?! I know; weird. It's the only time I've cooked with it. But it's YUMMY as long as u don't use over-mature/woody stems. Can serve cold as wilted salad. - 1/30/09
