Olive Oil Sauteed Spinach with Garlic
Spinach is truly one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet. I think Popeye was the first market the concept of a SuperFood! I've found the challenge in incorporating more vegetables into my diet has been finding recipes that don't really require a recipe to make. Ones that I can do while something else is broiling without much thought at all.
This is one of those recipes that once you've made it for the first time... you can make it a million times. Plus, it incorporates two more additional SuperFoods.
4 cups of loosely packed baby spinach leaves (typically one bag in the store)
1-2 cloves of garlic, crushed (if garlic lover, add more!)
2 T of olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Over medium flame/heat in a large frying pan or wolk, cook the garlic in the olive oil until a very light golden brown. Then toss in the spinach and cook until wilted. Salt and pepper to taste.
Note, you'll think you're making way too much, but it cooks down to only two servings.
