- Ready In:
- Wash the spinach thoroughly and cut the rough stems off.
- Cook the spinach in very little water in a covered pan for 5 mins then drain and chop.
- Heat the olive oil over a medium to low heat and add the finely sliced garlic, sultanas and pine nuts. Fry gently for 2 - 3 mins, stirring all the time so that the pine nuts brown but do not burn. Add the spinach.
- Mix all ingredients together and season with salt and pepper.

I repeated Rita~'s cooking method and sauteed the garlic, pine nuts and sultanas together and then added the fresh spinach while the skillet was still hot, and I cooked it just until the spinach wilted a bit (maybe 5 minutes or so). And it was delicious. The sultanas add a wonderful taste, and the pine nuts give it a nice contrasting texture. We really enjoyed this dish. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Elmotoo. Made for the Best of 2012 tag game.
This is a quick to put together. And I made it even quicker then stated in directions. I sauteed roasted garlic, pine nuts and raisins for a touch in the oil then I added baby spinach right to the mix, tossed n covered till just wilted. This would work great with bitter green adding sweetness for the sultanas. Thanks made for Veggie Tag. Thanks
If you love spinach then you are sure to love this tasty dish. I didn't use the sultanas as they weren't in the ingredient list, so I didn't even realize it until I was making the dish. So I used crasisns instead. I loved the sweet tart of the crasins and the pine nuts together with the garlic and spinach! Excellent! Made for Veg 'n Swap tag.
