Spinach!

Viva Los Spinach!

One of my favorite greens is Spinich. Not only is it healthy (Vitamin A, C, Calcium, Iron), it is very simple to prepare! I prepare spinich the same way I prepare other greens like rapini(broccoli rabe).

Bring a large pot of water to boil and add 2 tablespoons of salt. Blanche the spinich by dipping into the boiling water for approx. 5 minutes. Drain the spinich in a colander.

In a medium pan, medium heat, add a tablespoon (or two) of olive oil, 2 cloves of garlic (sliced), a pinch of red chili flakes (optional), sautee for a minute. Add the spinch and sautee for two minutes. Ready to serve. Quick and easy!

Add a drizzle of olive oil,salt and black pepper (to taste). The perfect side with your favorite meats or fish. I also like to squeeze a little fresh lemon to spinich too!

If you have leftovers, it’s perfect with eggs – be creative!

a presto,

maria !
