Sautéed spinach (or any greens) with garlic and a squeeze of lemon (or vinegar) is a simple formula that lets spinach shine and will never go out of favor.

Delicious and easy!

I pulled a roast chicken out of the oven half an hour ago & decided on spur of the moment I should cook some spinach to go with it. Not being a lover of cooked spinach (but I happen to have a huge bunch of the stuff & I'm trying to be healthier!) I popped online for a quick, simple recipe and immediately found this one! Along with mashed potatoes, this spinach dish was perfect with the chicken! I added onion (browned with the garlic) and a dash or two of soy sauce at the end. Half an hour later and it's been eaten & I wish I'd made more! It was so delicious I wolfed it down before the chicken or taties even got a look in! That's really impressive - to turn spinach into something I wanted to eat first! Big bonus was how quick & easy it was to make. Thank you!

Easy, quick & healthy

Very yummy and pretty. Be careful not to over cook garlic before adding spinach.


MMMMM NOM NOM NOM YUMMY NOM!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just made this. Tastes sort of Asian and is completely satisfying. It makes you feel like you're a five-star chef. That's how delicious it is. It's also SO easy to make--took me less than 7 minutes. I added mushrooms to mine to add to the volume, because the spinach shrinks really fast.

Fast, tasty
So simple and tasty

Super easy to make, healthy and very tasty The hot pepper and lemon juice work beautifully together with the spinach. I added a pinch of grated parmesan, for just a bit extra zing.

Quick and easy, almost always have ingredients on hand
My favorite!

Have made this recipe three times in one week. It is definitely one of my favorite vegetables to have with lunch or dinner. I could eat it every day if my husband let me! ;). The red pepper really gave it that kick (I added a little extra too).

Healthy, easy, delicious
