Fresh Spinach Sauteed with Garlic & Lemon

Gently sauteed spinach with garlic & lemon makes a delicious & easy side dish. The key is to watch it closely - it cooks very quickly, in just a few minutes!                                                      Makes 2 servings

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or butter
  • 8 oz spinach, fresh
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/8 whole lemon (freshly squeezed lemon juice)
  • 1 tablespoons lemon zest or peel (optional)
  • salt and cracked pepper
  1. Sautee spinach uncovered - to really get best spinach results, you cook it just enough to wilt - don't overcook.
  2. Heat olive oil or butter in a skillet on medium low heat. Add the minced fresh garlic when the oil is hot, and saute the garlic for about 1 minute to release the flavor, constantly stirring to keep garlic from burning.

  3. Add spinach, a handful at a time, and adding another handful as spinach wilts, and cook, uncovered, on medium-high heat for only 1 minute, constantly stirring, uncovered.

  4. Remove from heat and cover. Let it sit for 2-3 minutes. Uncover, and mix. Squeeze just a touch of fresh lemon juice right out of the lemon (using about an eighth of lemon), and stir to combine.
  5. Taste the spinach, and add a pinch of salt, and plenty of fresh cracked pepper. Top with lemon zest if desired.
