1 large bunch or bag of fresh spinach (wash, spin dry)
1-2T. extra virgin olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
½ shallot diced
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
Optional: Fresh lemon juice and grated Parmesan cheese
Chop spinach slightly but do not dice.
Heat a heavy bottomed sauté pan over medium high heat.
Add 1-2 T. extra virgin olive oil. Add garlic and sauté a minute then add shallots. Saute a minute or two more then add spinach. Sauté until limp (a couple of minutes). Season with salt and pepper. Enjoy. Can add a little sprinkle of Parmesan cheese and squeeze of lemon juice to enhance flavor!
This makes a nice base for a piece of fish or chicken. Also nice to add to some scrambled eggs.
