Wilted Spinach with Nutmeg

After rinsing the spinach, leave some water clinging to the leaves. This will help the spinach wilt evenly in the pan, without becoming too soft.

Wilted Spinach with Nutmeg


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 packages (10 ounces each) fresh spinach, rinsed, tough ends discarded
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. In a large, deep saucepan with a tight-fitting lid, melt butter over medium heat. Add spinach (with water still clinging to leaves); cover, and cook until wilted, stirring halfway through, about 5 minutes.

  2. Remove from heat. Season with nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Serve immediately with a slotted spoon.
