Can anyone give me an easy way to make spinach and garlic? Everyone tells me how easy it is, but I have no clue at all. I love it so much I really just want to know how I can make it

Thanks

I am assuming this is what you mean??

I take e.v.o.o. and heat on med-low in a saute pan. Add two or three cloves of finely chopped garlic and cook for a few minutes, stirring frequently. Than add a bag or two of fresh spinach, season with s + p, and turn until it is all wilted

sounds simple enough but 1 question-what does e.v.o.o. stand for? Possibly a stupid question, but right now the most cooking I do is chicken on the foreman, shrimp and pasta.

Here is a quick and easy side dish you might like:

1 yellow crookneck squash, sliced
a few handfuls baby spinach
butter
1 clove crushed garlic


Put serving bowl in microwave with butter and garlic in it. Nuke until melted.

Meanwhile, cook squash in boiling water for 1 minute or to taste

Drain squash, then add it to melted butter, season w/ salt and pepper, and stir.

Stir in baby spinach. The residual heat from the butter and squash will wilt it a bit.

Sometimes I add red pepper flakes in when I melt the butter.

Yum Yum;
I love sauteed spinach with garlic and onions
olive oil in a pan, medium heat, smash a couple of cloves of garlic and mince stir, briefly add
thin strip chicken tenderloins, turn over and check for thoroughly cooked, then add fresh spinach washed thoroughly and patted dry, don't want too much water, add thinly sliced
red onion or vidalia onion, season to taste with your favorite herbal if desired, stir and cover and let cook until you can smell it, on lower temp.
serve over cooked rice or pasta..
Yumm

Use more spinach than you think you need, it cooks down a lot
