Super Spinach

29 Feb

We We have recently been getting a ton of spinach in our weekly boxes from Abundant Harvest Organics .  We love spinach and two days ago I whipped some up at the last minute using a new technique.  It was so good that I made the same recipe last night.  Here it is–super quick, easy and delicious (I seriously cooked it up while our steaks rested last night).  Enjoy!

1.  Prep your spinach (however much you want to make).  Tear off the tough ends and give it a quick rinse.  If you are using the pre-washed baby spinach in a bag you can skip this step–your spinach is ready to go.

2.  Coat a saute pan with some extra virgin olive oil.  Add a few peeled and lightly crushed garlic cloves (you want to keep them pretty much intact) and a pinch of crushed red pepper.  Turn the burner on to medium-high heat and cook just until the garlic starts to brown and becomes really fragrant., then remove the gloves from the pan and toss them out–they have fulfilled their garlicky destiny.

3.  Add your spinach and salt to taste (I pretty much always use kosher salt) and cook, stirring and tossing constantly, for a minute or two.  You want the spinach fairly wilted but still a beautiful vibrant green.  Serve immediately.
