I love sautéed spinach. It’s soooo easy and quick to make and people are always impressed. Plus they make you big and strong like Popeye. I always love playing with the flavors because nothing is worse than a bland pile of spinach. Blech.
I really, really dislike bland food. My mouth gets offended.
Shall we begin?
Heat some oil in a large pan and add some of the roasted garlic. The recipe for these little gems can be found right about here.
I used this much oil because I had two huge bags of spinach. Adjust the oil according to the spinach you have. It’s all a personal preference thing.
Once the garlic begins to sizzle, add a layer of spinach and season with S&P.
Once the first layer of spinach is wilted add more garlic, a layer of spinach and re-season. Repeat until all your spinach is cooked.
This method is better than just throwing in all your spinach in the pan at once because ensures that all the spinach is well seasoned and prevents spinach from flying all around your kitchen. Don’t you hate when spinach flies all around your kitchen? Ugh. Life is so hard.
This is a great side dish that goes well with almost any meal. Enjoy!
