A Simple But Delicious Spinach Recipe

On the menu tonight - fresh spinach sautéed in garlic and olive oil.
Butter and Garlic Spinach
Ingredients:
1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil
2 cloves garlic, sliced
1 bowl full spinach
salt and pepper
nutmeg

Preparation:
Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.
Sauté garlic until just starting to brown, about 1 minute.
Add spinach and pack down. Stir spinach to coat with olive oil.
Cook until wilted, about 5 minutes.
Sprinkle with salt, freshly grated pepper and nutmeg.
Serve and eat immediately.


Makes: 2 adult sized side dishes

My family's comments are priceless:
My husband, Darryl: "This tastes healthy." (He says he meant that in a good way!)
9 year old Aidan: "Tastes like spinach." (I know he meant that in a bad way!)
6 year old Melanie: "I don't like the sauce." (She meant the olive oil, salt, pepper and nutmeg - actually she meant she didn't like the whole thing!)

Maybe, I'm better at growing it than cooking it!
