Steamed spinach with garlic and lemon

A reader wanted to know how to replicate this restaurant dish. After rinsing spinach, leave a bit of water clinging to leaves. Pour a bit of olive oil into a skillet. Add a clove or 2 of minced garlic. Cook only until garlic is barely golden, don’t let it get brown/burned. Stir in several handfuls of spinach – as much as you want. Put lid on. It will wilt quickly. Squeeze a little lemon juice on, season with salt and pepper and serve.

Why spinach is good for you: be strong and tame those hunger pangs

The membranes in spinach leaves contain appetite-suppressing qualities. Spinach is very low in calories and high in iron, so eat up to fill up but not out!

Popeye knew a thing or two, didn’t he?

Here’s my UTube video on another yummy way to steam spinach.
