Sauteed Spinach

Updated: Mar 18, 2021

👩🏾‍🍳🤩I have a side dish recipe for you that’s PERFECT for this week because it contains greens, which are traditional to eat at the beginning of the year.

PLUS … it includes OLIVE OIL, this week’s food of the week!

🥬You also can make this with kale or Swiss chard.


(makes 6 servings)

● 4 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

● 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

● ¼ tsp red chili flakes

● 16 oz (450 grams) spinach, rinsed and dried, any tough ribs and stems removed,

● 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

● Pink Himalayan salt

● Freshly ground black pepper

Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and chilli flakes and sauté for one minute, long enough to infuse the oil but not so long that the garlic will burn.

Add handfuls of kale separately, tossing each to make sure they are fully coated with oil.

Cover the pan and let cook for 5 minutes, stirring 1-2 times.

Remove the lid and cook for another 5 minutes. Add vinegar, salt, and pepper to taste. Serve and enjoy!
