Spinach may be healthy, but that’s not the main reason we like it. Beyond health, if prepared as a spicy and highly flavored green, it’s delicious. Garlic, at least 4 cloves, salt and Red Pepper Flakes wakes it up.


1 10 ounce bag of washed Spinach leaves
4 Garlic Cloves thinly sliced
1/4 tsp of Red Pepper Flakes
1 tsp of Salt + a sprinkle of Pepper
1 TB of EVOO + 1 TB of Butter


1. Heat a deep sided saute pan to medium high. Add the EVOO, the Garlic & Red Pepper Flakes. Saute until tender, try not to burn the Garlic.
2. Add the Spinach in batches, as you do, quickly cover the pan because it will spatter water & oil over your stove top.
(A way to avoid this mess is to turn off the heat until it slightly cools. Then turn the heat back on & add the first batch.) Repeat this procedure until all the Spinach has wilted. No mess & well-sauteed Spinach.
