Sauteed Spinach – A Great Way to Enjoy this Healthy Green Veggie | VitaMedica
Wilted Spinach

Wilted Spinach

Serves 2 – 3



1 large bag of spinach (pre-cleaned and dry)

Olive Oil

2 cloves of garlic, cleaned and diced

1 lemon, cut into quarters with seeds removed

Salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper



In a large saute pan, add a few tablespoons of olive oil and diced garlic and cook for 1 minute over medium high heat.


Add spinach leaves and a bit more olive oil if necessary. Toss the spinach so that the leaves cook evenly, about 2 minutes. Add salt, pepper, cayenne pepper to taste.


Once cooked, squeeze juice from lemon then serve immediately.


Helpful Hints:

A large bag of spinach wilts down to a very small amount.  A good rule of thumb is one large bag per two people.
