Yield: 4 servings
|2 tablespoons||Olive oil|
|2 tablespoons||Roasted garlic|
|OR 1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic|
|2 pounds||Fresh spinach; washed well &|
|Salt and freshly ground black pepper|
Heat the olive oil in a large heavy-bottomed pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and saute for 1 minute, stirring. Add one half of the spinach and let it cook until it wilts enough to have room in the pan to add the rest of the spinach. Cook for 2 minutes, or until all of the spinach is wilted.
Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Serve at once. Serves 4 to 6.
The roasted garlic provides a mild garlic flavor. If you want a stronger garlic flavor, use raw garlic and saute it for a minute longer.
