Sauteed Spinach is an excellent way to introduce Vitamins A, C, K ,B-12 and Iron into your diet. It is also delicious - far better than its frozen or canned counterparts. This simple recipe allows for two methods of serving.
- 16oz Fresh Spinach, washed and dried.
- 2 T Olive Oil
- 2 T Chopped Garlic
- 2 T Minced Red Onion
- 1 Roma Tomato, seeded and chopped
- Coarse Black Pepper and Kosher Salt to taste
- Juice of 1 lemon
Heat Olive Oil in large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add Garlic, Onion and Tomato. Sauté lightly for about a minute. Do not allow garlic to brown. Add Spinach, salt and pepper to skillet. Using tongs, sauté spinach until tossed in oil and bright green. May be pulled from heat and served immediately, OR - add lemon juice and continue tossing for 20-30 seconds. Pull from heat and serve immediately.
Adding the lemon will add flavor and additional Vitamin C, but will also produce a more "cooked" product. Both are equally delicious.
