Sauteed Spinach And Garlic

I adore spinach and I always make room for it in my small vegetable garden. Not only is it tasty, but the thick green leaves are a nice contrast to the light colors and textures of some of my favorite fall leaf lettuces.

This recipe for sautéed spinach is a terrific way to prepare this cool season crop. It is fast, easy and great for you.

Ingredients

Instructions

Wash spinach thoroughly and pat dry. Remove stems.

Toast the pine nuts in a skillet or toaster and set aside. Watch the pine nuts carefully while toasting. They go from perfect to burned very quickly.

In a large skillet heat oil until hot but not smoking. Add garlic and then spinach.

Sauté spinach until it is wilted but still bright green. This usually takes about 2 minutes. Turn with tongs to cook evenly. Remove from heat and top with lemon juice and pine nuts.

Notes

Time to prepare: 20 minutes.

This recipe is vegetarian.

Serves 4.

    To save a lot of money, substitute roasted salted sunflower seeds for the pine nuts. They are delicious & do the job well.
