Breana Lai, M.P.H., R.D.

"Sautéed spinach (or any greens) with garlic and a squeeze of lemon (or vinegar) is a simple formula that lets spinach shine and will never go out of favor."

  • Ready In

  1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add garlic and cook until beginning to brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Add spinach and toss to coat. Cover and cook until wilted, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and add lemon juice, salt and crushed red pepper. Toss to coat and serve immediately.

Footnotes

  • Baby spinach is immature or young spinach-it's harvested earlier than large-leaved mature spinach. We like the sturdy texture of mature spinach in cooked dishes and serve tender, mild-flavored baby spinach raw or lightly wilted. Baby and mature spinach can be used interchangeably in these recipes (yields may vary slightly); be sure to remove the tough stems from mature spinach before using.
  • Weights & Measures: 10 ounces trimmed mature spinach=about 10 cups raw, 10 ounces baby spinach=about 8 cups raw

It was good but I thought it could use some slivered toasted almonds and I'm convinced it should be fresh and not frozen spinach

Delicious, easy and good for you! Just the thing for a light supper in the winter when you feel like you're overdoing with everything. It reminds me of a side dish at a good Italian restaurant! ...

As a kid I hated greens ... now I know why. They weren't cooked with this recipe. This recipe is simple but creates loads of taste.

I used 4 cloves of roasted garlic instead of raw and it turned out great.

Delicious. Added a few roasted pine nuts to each serving. They are easy to roast in the microwave - just watch them like a hawk!

I love this and it's an excellent way to use up fresh greens in the garden thanks for sharing !!

Perfectly simple - just the way I like it. Fresh Spinach is a regular addition to our table!

Very tasty!
