Spinach with Garlic

The name says it all!  Fresh spinach lightly sauteed in olive oil that has been infused with garlic. By first cooking the garlic in the olive oil, you add a light garlic flavor to the oil and also end up with crisp little chips of garlic that add a bit of crunch to the final dish.

This is a great and simple side dish that you can use to accompany just about any main course.  We enjoyed it with some baked salmon and Israeli couscous.

Share contents used:
5 oz Spinach

Other Ingredients:
2 garlic cloves
Olive oil
Salt & Pepper

Clean and dry the spinach.  Tear large leaves into bite size pieces and remove any long stems. Set aside.

Thinly slice the garlic into little chips.  Heat 2 tsp of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and add the garlic.  Saute until the garlic is brown and crisp, then remove the garlic from the pan and set aside, leaving the olive oil (now infused with garlic flavor) in the pan.

Add the spinach to the skillet and saute until just wilted.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.  Serve sprinkled with the toasted garlic chips.
