DIRECTIONS

  • Carefully rinse the spinach in several changes of water.
  • Discard the tough stems and any damaged leaves, drain briefly in a colander, shaking off excess water.
  • Over medium-high heat, in a deep sauté pan or wok, combine the olive oil, lemon zest and garlic.
  • After about 30 seconds, the garlic should begin to sizzle; immediately stir in the damp spinach and using tongs or 2 wooden spoons, toss and stir quickly until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Transfer the spinach to a warmed serving dish and sprinkle with a pinch of salt and a few grinds of fresh pepper.
  • Serve at once.
