spinach with garlic and olive oil

Spinach, a vegetable rich in vitamins and minerals, and now being usurped by its famous cousin, kale.

But spinach with a good toss of olive and garlic can never be replaced and I find it more elegant and subtle in flavor compared to kale.

Ingredients

Directions

1
Done

Clean the spinach well in a colander, rinsing several times to assure sand and dirt are removed. Cut off any large, hard stems- but most stems can and should remain. Keeping the spinach slightly damp, it helps with cooking.

2
Done

In a medium saute pan over medium heat, add the olive oil and garlic. Gently cook the garlic for about 2-3 minutes to infuse into the oil. You do not want to burn, make sure heat is controlled.
