Spinach is one of my favourite superfoods. As baby spinach leaves are super versatile, they feature commonly in salads, or quick fries. This is possibly one of the most idiot-proof recipes in my repertoire, it barely takes 10 minutes to prep and cook! The addition of pinenuts instantly luxes this simple dish up.
2 cloves garlic, minced (put this through a garlic press to save time)
1 tbsp olive oil for frying
200gm baby spinach (plan for 100gm per person), washed and dried through a salad spinner
20 pinenuts (plan about 10 per person, or as many as you like. I usually just eyeball it and grab a handful)
Salt to taste
Directions (feeds 2)
1) Fry garlic till fragrant in olive oil.
2) Add spinach.
3) When spinach is wilted, add pinenuts. Salt to taste and serve thereafter.
