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.
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.
Time to prepare: 20 minutes.
