    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.

    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.
