Pan Seared Spinach with Garlic

I was at the grocery store in the produce section and I came across this amazing “Island Spinach”.  It was so lush and green.  I had no idea what I was doing with it but I had to buy it.  The leaves were amazing; they very texturized and funny shaped, pointed at the tip of the leaves.  I was inspired by my mom to sear the spinach.  This recipe is really easy & loaded with flavor.

  • 1 lb spinach
  • 5 garlic cloves, sliced
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Salt (I prefer “Real Salt” or Sea Salt)
  • Black Pepper (I always use freshly ground)
Take your favorite frying pan and put enough olive oil in it to cover the bottom.  Turn the heat up to medium-high.  Once the oil is hot place the garlic and spinach in the pan.  The oil should be popping and steaming a bit.  Let the spinach cook on one side for about 30 seconds to 1 minute.  Quickly flip over and cook for an additional 30 seconds to 1 minute.  When the spinach is done is should be dark green to brown in color, it will also be wilted.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Serve Immediately.
