Toasted Garlic Spinach: A Fast & Easy Side DishElizabeth Stark
Fast, fresh, family-friendly vegetable dishes aren’t always that easy to find. Vegetable prep can be pretty labor intensive, and after a long day, it’s not always the easiest thing to squeeze in. But listen up, ’cause I’ve found a new favorite that my whole family loved! This toasted garlic spinach makes use of slow-cooked garlic, which brings out big flavor while tempering the pungent properties of garlic. The spinach gets cooked over low heat, and comes out smooth and delicious. Flavorful, buttery, and basically awesome. I’m in love.
Toasted Garlic Spinach
2 tablespoons butter
5 large cloves garlic, trimmed, smashed, peeled, and chopped
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 lb. spinach leaves, washed and dried
fresh ground black pepper to taste
In a large, deep skillet, heat the butter over medium heat. Turn heat to low, and add the garlic. Cook over low heat, stirring every now and then, for about 10 minutes. When the garlic starts to brown on the edges (just a little), add the spinach and sprinkle with sea salt. Cook over low heat for another 10 minutes, stirring just to fold in the uncooked leaves. Spoon the leaves into a serving dish (leave behind the liquid), taste, adjust salt levels if needed, and serve with a few twists of fresh ground black pepper.
