I haven't made this particular recipe but I have been making one similiar to it. I read the reviews and a lot said it was too oniony and not enough pecan. I actually use more onion and spinach but instead of chopping the onion and only cooking til tender, I caramelize the sliced onions first with butter or olive oil and a pinch of sugar. Then add the spinach, omit the water, then add pecans. The sweetness of the caramelized onions works really well with the nutty flavor of pecan and the spinach absorbs both flavors. My 2 yr old and 4 yr old love to eat their spinach this way! Read More

This recipe was good but it did not have as strong a pecan flavor as I would have liked. My fiance who does not like pecans actaully enjoyed it. So for pecan lovers I would suggest adding some more pecans. Read More

this tasted really good but made as is it would only serve 2 and is pretty onion-y. I would recommend doubling the amount of spinach and leaving the other measurements the same. This would make a wonderful "bed" for sauted chicken breast. Read More

We loved this recipe! I omitted the onions and substituted whole garlic cloves like Carraba's does (I think I spelled that right). Look out Popeye! Read More

This turned out great but I did make some changes. I caramelized the onions and then removed them from the pan adding them back to the spinach after it was cooked. Instead of water I cooked the spinach with a mixture of chicken broth oyster sauce and sesame seed oil. The pecans were delicious and added a nice crunch. We will definitely make this again!

Really tasty! Definitely add more spinach. They wilt and come down to almost nothing. I used almost a whole bag less water and more pecans. Read More

This is good. I decided to toast the pecans and top the dish with them as other reviews wished for more of a pecan taste. That worked for me. Used a tad less onion and decreased the water to a Tbs. Read More

I agree that it needs more spinach less onion and more pecans! But the flavors are great. It makes a really good side dish. Read More
