Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil extra virgin
  • 4 cloves garlic sliced
  • 1 bunch fresh spinach (bagged fresh spinach can be substituted)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Wash spinach thoroughly and remove stems. Set spinach leaves aside on paper towels to dry.
  • Slice garlic cloves thin. It is important that the slices are relatively evenly sliced, to ensure even cooking.
  • Heat olive oil in large sauté pan, over medium heat. Add garlic slices and cook until lightly browned. This will take about 5 minutes.
  • Add spinach and cook until leaves are wilted, stir frequently. This will take about 2 minutes.
  • Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
