The key here is brief exposure to heat, so that the leaves are bright green and retain some of their crisp texture.
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes
3 TB olive oil
2 cloves garlic, slivered
12-16 oz spinach, washed and dried.
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
freshly ground black pepper
salt to taste
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet or saute pan over medium high heat. Cook the garlic for 15 seconds, then add the spinach. Cook for a minute, stirring, or until spinach is just beginning to wilt. Remove to plates, drizzle with lemon juice, sprinklw with pepper and salt, and serve.
