Sauteed Spinach

This spinach dish from chefs Lee Hanson and Riad Nasr (Minetta Tavern) tastes great alongside their Roast Farmers Chicken.

  • prep: 15 mins
    total time: 15 mins
  • servings: 4


  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 pound leaf spinach
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed


  1. Step 1

    Bring a large saucepan of generously salted water to a boil. Prepare an ice-water bath; set aside. Add spinach to boiling water and cook until just wilted. Transfer to ice-water bath, until cool. Drain and squeeze to remove any excess liquid.

  2. Step 2

    In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat and add garlic. Add spinach; season with salt and pepper. Cook until heated through; serve immediately.

    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.
