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.
