This was very tasty. I added red pepper flakes and reduced fat feta after it was cooked. Thank you for sharing!
Very nice - simple, straight forward flavors. The only change I made was a personal preference, to mince the garlic.
I love this and have been making it for years. It's a great way to add spinach to your diet. The only thing I do that's different is add some onion to the butter since we really love the flavor it adds.
I've had this since I was a kid. I use a splash of balsamic vinegar instead of the lemon juice. I use this same method for beet greens too.
My family has cooked this for yrs. Spinach cooked sepeate, crushed garlic, no salt. Any leftovers go into a pasta & white clam sauce dinner. For people who love their greens, sauce is good with chopped kale, beet tops & whatever. Fast easy & yummy.
We get this dish at a very expensive place we go to on special occasions. Thought I'd see if this was it. Hubby took one bite and said "Wow, this is just like Eddie's!" Love it, we'll be eating alot more of this! UPDATE: I have used frozen spinach, you just have to drain it really well. Fresh is better of course.
Excellent!! I followed this exactly! I then put the cooked, drained spinach in 4 tomato cups I had zig-zag cut around and hollowed out. I topped grated parm and warmed slightly in the oven. It was a nice presentation along side a filet. UPDATE: I have made this 5-6 times since and it is worth making instead of buying frozen! So easy and flavorful. Thank you!
I have made this for years and I finish it off with Sesame Oil.......love it.
Love Garlic Spinach. We follow my mothers recipe and use about 3 cloves of garlic browned in olive oil, which are removed from the oil after browning. Then just add a little salt to taste afterward. We also love to add boiled potatoes that have been quartered (small red ones) to the mixture. It is colorful and wonderful!
Used 2 T. Butter & 3 large cloves of garlic chopped. Followed the directions except I used the Salt Grinder and ground sea salt into the garlic butter cooking on low. Used a WHOLE HUGE Package of Costco Spinach and just added large handfuls and kept turning it. Forgot about the lemon because I was BBQ'ing the rest of dinner. Will definitely be making this again. Doesn't need the lemon. This was delish! DH really liked it too and he is a "Creamed Spinach or forget it" guy. Great find!
I made this on a whim after stumbling across it in my recipe box (trying to plan NEXT week's menu) and remembering I had a bag of spinach on it's last legs in our frig and realizing it would go perfectly w/the beef and potatoes already in the dinner line up. Boy, did it ever! And so easy! I followed the recipe using 1 bag of spinach, 3 garlic cloves, 1 T butter, a dash of (bottled) lemon juice, and a sprinkle of season salt (it was in front and I was too harried to find the garlic salt). Mr. LTH RAVED about this and I, for some reason, often find myself w/extra spinach to use or toss, so this will def become a regular side at the LTH house. THANKS, Danni!
Always dependable, always delicious. Use garlic to taste and don't let it brown! I do not use the extra garlic salt. I generally don't add lemon juice but found it a nice, refreshing finish.
Really good and garlicky....I would add more lemon next time, I thought it needed more but other than that my whole family enjoyed!
Excellent flavor. Followed the recipe exactly as written.
Side dishes do not come fresher, faster or easier than this one! Delicious as is or with a few red pepper flakes tossed in with the garlic. As others have stated jarred minced garlic is handy and works just as well. All ingredient amounts are easily adjustable to suit your taste ... play around a bit. I'm looking forward to replacing the butter with the oil oil or adding a bit of sesame oil next time. Adding a sprinkle of parmesan or feta cheese before serving tastes great also! Thanks for the recipe and all the viewer tips!!
This was delicious. My husband who doesn't like spinach went in for seconds. Thank you. And it was so easy.
I too add a little red pepper flakes to butter & garlic before adding the spinach. Right before serving I top it with chopped hard boiled eggs. Just like grandma used to do. This is a fast, healthy & delicious dish.
Well, I used this recipe as inspiration for a 9oz box of grn giant frozen plain ol chopped spinach. I let that thaw and squeezed some excess moisture out. Anyway...I warmed a swirl of olive oil and a tsp of reg butter in 8" saute pan. I added 1 large clove of garlic (crushed with side of knife) to oil/butter & sauteed til garlic softened. I use a fork to mash it up. Didn't use any garlic salt, just sea salt. I sauteed spinach in same pan with a small splash of fresh lemon juice (yes, b careful w/amount of lemon). At this point it was "pretty good". I went further & added some fresh grated nutmeg, coriander, white pepper, and 1 tblsp dry sherry. Then this rocked! I placed in oven (350) for 15 mins while rolls baked off. Something you can definately play around with and I will use fresh spinach next time since it turned out so tasty!
I love garlic spinach, this is a good recipe. I've been making a version of this for years. Instead of garlic salt I use garlic powder and a splash of soy sauce.
Delicious! Done in a flash! Healthy and Economical. This made a perfect side dish to Artichoke Chicken (another yummy AR recipe). There's just something about the wonderful aroma of butter garlic and lemon juice. Oh...the spinach turns a lovely bright and fresh green colour too - So Kudos all around.
What a great side dish! We loved this. Be sure you dont burn the garlic, keep tossing the spinach until its wilted. I took it off the burner and let the steam finish wilting it.
6-4-15 I found this a little too tart or I would have rated this 5 stars if the recipe called for less lemon juice. I sauteed purple onions and red pepper flakes with the garlic for added flavor. Once the spinach was wilted, I seasoned it with salt, pepper and garlic powder. 04-13-19 Update: I make this quite often, I absolutely love spinach and garlic. I used fresh squeezed lime juice because that's what I had. Always a favorite.
Delicious!! Gave it a little kick with some red pepper flakes. A keeper for sure.
also good with parmesan sprinkled on top, don't always put lemon on this
Fantastic, just added some green onions. Easy and tasty
Good but nothing special...
it was ok but i like it more with butter and garlic only
Excellent! Very simple, not a lot of ingredients and takes no time at all to prepare yet has a ton of flavor and not to mention it's good for you too! You can easily adjust the recipe to suite your tastes. Overall, a nice side dish that will please even the pickiest eater.
Nice simple dish..I make kale, swiss chard and broccoli the same way except I skip the lemon juice. Very versitilie dish.
had good flavors, i had to add a little pepper
way too garlicky
Perfect blend of seasonings, the lemon gives it a fresh yummy flavor. I only had a 5oz. container of spinach so it only made 2 servings (I reduced the garlic to 2 cloves). Will definitely put this in my rotation and make more next time. Thank you for sharing!
What a great low carb and healthy receipe! Thank you for posting. Also tastes great pureed in a blender with a teaspoon of sour cream.
So good!!! This is one of the ways to eat spinach.
I added a little sugar (about 2 tablespoons) to cut the bitterness.
Sauteed mushrooms and garlic in butter first then added fresh spinach and a splash of white wine
This is my kind of recipe...quick and easy. I followed recipe pretty much as written except using lime instead of lemon. I tasted it and it was so good. Then decided to add the red pepper flakes and feta cheese just to see if it would add anything and it did! Really liked the combination of flavors. Thanks for a wonderful recipe and for all the helpful reviews.
Easy and delicious. I added some crushed red pepper flakes.
simple, easy to do, and tasts great. Thanks
Easy, easy, easy and so good. Loved it.
This was simple, used ingredients I always have on hand, and took the side of steamed spinach into an entirely different realm. Delicious...
This recipe was just okay. My Mom and I both agreed that it wasn't bad, but it wasn't great. However, my husband hated it. I'm glad to know there are others that enjoy it though. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
This way okay. =*[
This is fantastic. I chopped fresh garlic in the food processor the second time and caramelized it in butter before adding the spinach. It was delicious! I highly recommend.
Awesomeness! I used two bags of frozen spinach. I forgot the lemon juice and at the last minute I used lemon pepper Mrs. Dash. I also added seasoning salt and pepper. Even my teen loved it. This will be a staple.
This is fantastic. I put grilled chicken over the top. So yummy!
My daughters LOVED this! Have a hard time getting them to eat vegetables, tried this tonight and they had two helpings.
This was a very easy to follow and delicious recipe. This is my 2nd all time favorite side dish :-)
My boyfriend does not even like spinach, but he raves everytime I make this! It is super easy to make and is delicious! I highly recommend this side dish!!
The garlic was the perfect amount, but I would suggest using a little less lemon if you do not take to lemons well. I used plain salt rather than garlic salt since garlic was already added and also added in about 1/8 tsp of black pepper. A great accompaniment to just about any protein.
Delicious!!! I must remember to juice the lemon into a small container first so I don't bite down on seeds!
Great recipe! Its great as is! All adults loved it! Its also very nutritious, low calorie, and very filling!
I made this for dinner as a side dish. I followed the recipe but also added shredded gouda cheese to the top and let it melt before serving. Nothing special, but it tastes good, it's quick and healthy! Even my 1 yr old daughter loves it!
I've always made it this way, but recently I had to change it to make it a little healthier...instead of butter I use olive oil now, add garlic and I've been adding a shallot as well....spinach, lemon and red pepper flakes..Amazing!
I just made this today for my lunch using the recipe provided. However, I used fresh picked rainbow chard from my garden. I used the stems, cutting them small, as well as the leaves and cooked until the stems still had a little crunch. It was delicious and is now part of my diabetic diet. The flavor is easily changed by adding a little sesame oil or parmesan or feta cheese - options are many according to taste preference.
This was so good! I typically use balsamic vinegar with my spinach but the lemon juice was a nice, refreshing change. It paired perfectly with my seared ahi tuna :)
yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum- I know how much a lot of you hate a review when the recipe has been altered- but I didn't have lemons so I used lime juice and I didn't have time to thinly slice the garlic so I used a garlic press and wound up peeling 7 instead of 6. OUTSTANDING, this is our new way to enjoy spinach, thank you~
This was very good, however I can get the same thing with a lot less work with a bag of frozen spinach and you do not need to add butter which just makes a very healthy vegetable not quite so healthy. I used vinegar instead of lemon juice as that is how we like to eat cooked spinach.
Soooooo simple, fast and delicious!!! DH almost ate the whole bag by himself. Did just a splash of balsamic vinegar right at the end.
I had just prepared Salt Cod Stew and Joan asked, "What about a side dish?" So after a few minutes checking my All Recipes App, I found this to go along with what I had on hand and a delicious addition. Fast and easy to prepare, we sprinkled on a little Feta making it a little extra special.
Such a simple recipe and such a tasty one.I used olive oil instead of butter, and loved the result. Will definitely do it many more times.
Defintely in the minority here. We all wanted to like this recipe, but the flavors just weren't for us, I guess. Thanks for sharing, Danni!
Very good... my only change is that the 6 cloves of garlic are a little much... I just use two of the big cloves and that's usually enough. Melt the butter and cook the garlic in first then put the spinach in. Very nice side dish for quick week night meals.
Easy and fast. Used minced garlic to taste and even sprinkled a little extra garlic powder as well. Sadly, no fresh lemon on hand, so I used seasoned rice vinegar instead. Sprinkled a little feta at the end and tossed with some roasted red pepper strips. It made a beautiful side dish to the panko-crusted chicken I served tonight.
Very delicious, especially if you like garlic!
This is a super easy way to make spinach taste good, haha. The garlic and lemon are a great compliment. It's a great five-minute side dish.
Easy and delicious! I wouldn't add too much lemon or use a sprinkle of balsamic vinegar instead. I have also added mushrooms into the mix.
It turned out great! I substituted olive oil for the butter and added mushrooms with the spinach. I love the flavored together.
Really good! Can be used with lime.
Made it exactly as recipe and wouldn't have changed a thing. We love spinach, to two of us ate the whole recipe
I liked this. I love spinach and garlic so this was a dish that was perfect for me. Its simple and delicious. I gave it 4 stars because it wasn't one of those things that I was WOW'd by, but it was definitely a tasty side dish.
We used roasted garlic instead of fresh. Brings out so much more flavor. Also didn't use garlic salt. Just a little sea salt.
Pretty good. Next time I will probably use balsamic vinegar instead of lemon as another reviewer suggested.
A bit too lemony for my taste, but I'd make it again. Just lessen the lemon.
I added a little bit of olive oil too. Alone it is great or can be used as a sauce base. I added some diced canned tomatoes and cooked pasta. I mixed it up and let it simmer. Adding a dash of sweet basil was also yummy.
I made this as a side dish for our evening meal. It was easy to make and had a lot of flavor. The next time I make this I plan on cutting back on the lemon juice a little.
This was a flavorful and healthy side dish. I used extra virgin olive oil in place of the butter and paired it with some lightly breaded fish for supper.
Excellent. I also minced my garlic and added both balsamic vinegar and lemon juice.
Meh, this just didn't come together very well. I used lemon juice since I didn't have any fresh ones on hand, and that really overpowered everything.
This recipe was nice and easy. Very convenient for a first time spinach cooker!!!
Made this for dinner tonight with a couple of changes. I omitted the garlic salt because I put a little extra fresh minced garlic. I also substituted some balsamic vinegar at the end as suggested by another reviewer. (I don't care for lemon juice in greens)All in all a very good recipe, which I will be saving to make again.
My mom made spinach this way - very easy to make but so flavorful. Of course, she says when food is cooked with love, it is all good.
Now add some plump fresh scallops and chopped Shitake mushrooms, and you have the dish I had last Sunday at a well respected Fish restaurant here in San Diego. AHHHHH some. So that inspired me to try the same sauce with Kale and Mustard Greens.
This dish is absolutely phenomenal just the way it is written. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing...so simple.
love it! the baby in my belly has been making me eat lots of spinach lately, and I couldn't have a side spinach salad for breakfast, lunch, and dinner everyday lol. so this is a nice change.
Excellant! Cooked a steambag of spinach then followed the recipe and just sauted in the cooked spinach. I also sprinkles some parmesan on it.
This was great even the non spinach eaters in my house ate it and would eat it again!
For a basic side dish of spinach, this is the way to go. Simple & easy - topped with chopped. fresh tomatoes.
Fast, easy, and good flavor!Oh I added onions too!
Basic and fabulous!
Wonderful! NEVER too much garlic! I used fresh chopped garlic & red onions.
This is so simple but so good, used lemon pepper blend instead of salt and lemon, based on what I had on hand. Want to try with balsamic instead of lemon juice as mentioned.
I love this recipe! I've never tried it with the lemon juice because I never have it on hand but it still tastes great. The amount of spinach needed at first may seem intimidating but they really shrink in size as you cook it.
