I was pleasantly surprised by this recipe. I LOVE spinach, but the rest of the family kind of just "tolerates" it. After we ate, my husband said "That was the most cooked spinach that i've ever eaten at one sitting." He loved it! I wilted the spinach right in the skillet with the garlic instead of micro-steaming it. I used light sour cream and used just a pinch of sugar to balance that lemon juice. This is a winner. Thanx!
When I started to make this dish I was sure I had a lemon in the fridge... no lemon! Still this spinach was wonderful. The sour cream adds a mild tang and one clove of garlic was perfect. Thanks for a great spinach recipe!
Very good and very rich. Hubby gobbled this up as a side with smoked pork chops and steamed white asparagus. This will be added to our regular rotation of side dishes.
