Ingredients

Directions

  • Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add raisins, pine nuts and garlic; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Tips

Note: The sturdier texture of mature spinach stands up better to sauteing than baby spinach and it's a more economical choice. We prefer to serve baby spinach raw.

Awesome salad I love golden raisins and these just make this salad. I use them often in cooking. I make a dish with sauted onions raisins and wheat bulgur that is simply delicious and I would love this as a starter. Too many raisins? Never! Pros: Everything Cons: None Read More

I made this last nite; we didn't have pine nuts so we just added extra raisins and garlic. It was super quick and easy and yummy! This recipie made two servings and we ate the whole thing. My friend said he would probably leave off the cheese I love cheese but don't care one way or the other in this recipie because I don't think it added much. We will make this again! Read More

This was a perfect combination of flavors. I had to make a few substitutions for ingredients I had. Used chopped walnuts instead of pine nuts and sauteed it in sesame oil. I"ll definitely make it again. Read More

I love this recipe.. even though I did not use exact ingredients. The idea behind it is great. I sauteed chopped garlic (2 cloves) pine nuts dried cranberries & lemon zest with pepper & a little kosher salt for about 3 minutes in olive oil. Added the spinach for another 2 min or so until wilted. Finished with shredded parm cheese. Unbelivably awesome taste!!! Can't stress enough how good this version is! Read More
