I love the pairing of fresh sauteed spinach with garlic, so I use 3 garlic cloves sliced. I also love a little heat. Crushed red pepper flakes does the trick for this recipe. In a large cold saute pan I add in some olive oil, fresh sliced garlic, and red pepper flakes. As the oil comes up to temperature, the garlic and red pepper flakes infuse the oil. You just want to do this for a minute or so. Long enough to when you smell the  garlic it’s ready. No one likes the taste of burnt garlic. I have 2 packages of fresh spinach. It looks like a lot but it really cooks down to almost nothing, Once I smell the garlic I add in the spinach. I do it it batches slowly because at first it all won’t fit in the pan. As the first batch of leaves start to wilt, I toss the garlic and red pepper flakes through. Then I add in the rest of the spinach and repeat the process. As soon as all the leaves just wilt, I sprinkle in the Kosher salt. Toss everything around really well so all the leaves are coated. Then I turn off the heat. That’s all there is to this recipe.

Yields: 2 servings
Prep Time: 1 minute
Cook Time: 5 minutes
2 packages of fresh spinach leaves
3 tablespoons of olive oil
3 sliced garlic cloves
1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon Kosher salt

First slice the 3 garlic cloves. Next, add the oil to the cold saute pan. Add in the sliced garlic and red pepper flakes. On med heat, bring the oil up to temperature and saute the garlic just for a minute or until you smell the aroma. Add the spinach leaves to the pan in batches. As soon as all the leaves have wilted enough, that’s when I season with the Kosher salt. Toss through one more time until all the leaves are coated with the seasoning and garlic, then turn the heat off. This sauteed spinach is so flavorful, you just may change you mind about spinach.
