    Izzy Knight's Note:

    Recipe from Martha Stewart. I am not an avid Martha fan, but this spinach dish is fragrant with garlic, but without the fat, and easy. I think it's better than spinach salad because you don't even have to dry them and comparing with with the calories you get with salad dressing, this "sauted" spinach is practically calorie-free!

      This was very easy to do and delicious. I added some hot pepper flakes along with the garlic. The thing I like most about this recipe is that I don't have to worry about drying the spinach (which is always a pain). I will be making this again soon!

      I'm not a Martha fan either, but this is how I prepare my spinach.

      Fresh spinach from the garden cooked with loads fof garlic - What could be better? I also added 2 tbsp of Ketjap Manis for the last minute of cooking. We really enjoyed the recipe
