Spinach. Love it or hate it, you can’t deny that it’s good for you. I love it. So, I figured since this is the first post of a new year and we’re all trying forget the 5 pounds we packed on eating Aunt Agus’ 5,000 calorie a piece pound cake from the holidays, a simple sauteed spinach recipe is fitting.
This recipe is one of my favorites. It takes me back to my childhood days of eating at the local Bar-B-Q joint called Peggy Sue’s and inhaling their lemony spinach. Garlicky and bright, this simple side dish is perfect with almost anything.
Lemon Sauteed Spinach with Toasted Garlic serves 4
- 2 garlic cloves
- 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 pound fresh baby spinach, preferably organic
- 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
- pinch salt and fresh ground pepper
Plate and serve. I could eat an entire bowl all by myself. No lie.
