I remember how I used to order this at a tiny pizza joint in Frankfurt. A definite winner given that I hate veggies in general... well, except for this light and easy spinach stir fry I tried to mimic from the family run pizza place! Great as a side dish, accompanied by perhaps a healthy grilled fish! Do also take note that spinach tends to shrink when heated, so you may like to add more to the pan!
- 500 g fresh spinach, washed and chopped to size
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon garlic (i love mine garlicky! It's full of healthy anti-oxidants!)
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- Heat oil in pan.
- Add garlic and spinach to pan. Stir fry till spinach is cooked.
- Squeeze a few drops of lemon juice over spinach in pan. Stir briskly and serve immediately!
I'm the spinach lover in my family. I'm sorry to say that I didn't enjoy this dish. May be that I'm just not a fan of lemon juice. Thank you for your recipe. I'm always interested in preparing new dishes.
Really good tasty spinach in minutes! I prefer not to chop my spinach up small, and it didn't matter in this recipe. I made 1/3 recipe (because the 4 cups of prewashed spinach in the bag was plenty for me by myself), and all of it fit on the salad plate as photographed. I tried it first without the lemon juice, but the splash of lemon juice transformed the taste, just as Bergy said. Then I added some grated Parmesan cheese; that was nice, but did not add that much to the taste. A dieter's delight! Thanks for posting Cook Food Mood. Made for Healthy Choices.
That touch of lemon makes a big difference. I did the spinach in my wok, stir fried it for about 1 minute - just enough to wilt it and heat it through Mmm the garlic aroma Thanks for another touch to my spinach fix. Popeye would be proud of you
