Wilted Spinach with Oranges

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 5 mins

This is now my favorite way to make spinach. It's simple, but elegant with a slight Oriental flavor, and the warm orange segments are a delightful surprise. As a bonus, it's fat free.

  • 13 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 12 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 orange, peeled,seeded and cut into bite-size pieces

Yummy and unusual way to prepare spinach! Quick and easy are definately the words to describe the preparation. The only thing I did diffently was I used mandarin oranges (love them) and left out the sesame seeds. It's a keeper. Thanks for sharing. Tweeky.
