Spinach, you say?
Yes, spinach. I like spinach. Just depends on how it's cooked. But wilted spinach is my favorite. It's uber quick and so easy. And you only need three ingredients. Fresh spinach, a little bit of butter, and some garlic.
Melt 1-2 tablespoons of butter (I used one tablespoon in a 12 inch skillet) in a large skillet or wok and sauté the minced garlic for a few minutes.
Now add your spinach. I know this looks like a lot, but spinach is one of those things that cooks way, way down, so you want to start out with about four times as much you plan to serve.
(Yes, I know my stove is dirty. I was breading chicken fried venison and there is no tidy way to do that:)
Toss the spinach, butter and garlic together.
Continue to toss. The spinach will start to wilt very quickly.
See how much it's cooked down.
Sprinkle with a little bit of salt and pepper and serve.
This is only enough for hubby and I. And to think, I started with all that spinach.
What's great about this quick side is that it's fresh veggies. No cans involved.
When you need a fast and easy side dish, what do you reach for?
