Lemony, Garlicky Sautéed Spinach
- Raw Spinach leaves (I guestimate around 3 cups per person)
- Olive Oil
- Garlic, minced (depending on how much you like garlic I’d say 1-2 cloves per person)
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- One lemon
I like to give my spinach a quick rough chop because, like I’ve said, I have an aversion to foods with a stringy consistency…which tends to happen when cooking whole spinach leaves
Turn the stove heat down to med-love and add your spinach to the sauté pan; give it a quick mix, sprinkle some salt and pepper on top and cover the pan for about 30-60 seconds.
From here I like to take off the lid and continue mixing until it’s a consistency I’m happy with. I usually don’t wait to take it off the stove until it’s entirely cooked because it will cook down some more even after you remove it from the heat. Although it’s a sautéed spinach dish I don’t like mine to be too wilty so I make sure there’s still some fresh looking pieces left in the dish when I take it off the stove.
Now you can add more salt and pepper if you’d like and squeeze your lemon over the spinach to help cut some of the bitterness.
And Voila! Lemony-garlicky sautéed spinach!
