    I am on my last year as a culinary student, my desire to eat spinach is on the lower half of my list. This recipe sounds good, I am definately giving the recipe a shot.

    i just wandering, can we just saute spinach or stir fry?

    This is similar to the way we cook kale, except we simmer the kale in chicken broth.

    my daughter would remove the garlic, but not me, I clean it and cut into small pieces and hubby and I love it. Plus the garlic is very good for our bodies.
