    • 2 garlic cloves, gently crushed and peeled
    • 10 -12 ounces spinach, thick stems trimmed, leaves washed and dried well

    • 1 lemon, halved


    1. 1
      In a large saute pan over medium heat, melt the butter with the garlic until the butter is golden brown and smells nutty; make sure the garlic doesn’t burn.
    2. 2
      Raise the heat to high and add the spinach, in batches if need be, flipping and stirring, until just barely wilted, about 1 minute Take the pan off the heat; remove the garlic.

    4. 4
      Toss and serve immediately.

      This was great, the only change I made was to use 2 teaspoons of butter instead of 2 tablespoons and it seemed plenty buttery enough for us! Thanks!

      Simple and delicious! My daughter loves spinach and this is so quick and easy. I do add a little garlic powder to it just to enhance the flavor a bit more.
