Recipe type: Side Dish
Cuisine: Vegetable
Serves: 6-8
  • 20-24 ounces of fresh spinach
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil or butter
  • salt and pepper
  1. In a large frying pan with a lid, add olive oil or butter and crushed garlic.
  2. Saute the garlic for one minute over high heat and then turn down to medium heat and add in the spinach. The spinach will most likely be overflowing out of your pan. Cram it all in and put the lid over it until it cooks down a little and you can stir it without making a huge mess.
  3. When you are able to stir it, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Do not exceed ⅛ -1/4 tsp salt. Spinach does not need much salt.
  4. As soon as all the pieces have wilted, remove from heat and serve.
  5. At this point, you can leave it as is, or you can squeeze a little lemon juice on it, or sprinkle it with a little parmesan.
  6. Enjoy!
