Simple ingredients and preparation yield delicious results. I learned this recipe from an Israeli woman several years ago. She told me that this is a traditional way to cook a variety of greens, so feel free to experiment – just adjust cooking times accordingly.

Time: 10 minutes               Serves: 4

Ingredients


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound baby spinach leaves
  • sea salt, to taste
  • crushed red pepper flakes, to taste
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice

How to make it


  • Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 1-2 minutes being careful not to let it brown.
  • Add spinach and toss to coat with oil & garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 2 minutes until all of the spinach is wilted. Season to taste with sea salt and red pepper. Add lemon juice and stir to incorporate.
  • Remove from heat and serve.
