Vegan MoFo Day 21: Spinach

I really like spinach. I put it in any pasta dish I make and I often have it as a side dish with whatever else I'm eating. And of course, it goes on almost every sandwich I make. I'll eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The best thing about spinach is that it's zero points on weight watchers. The worst thing is that a huge bag will cook down to just a couple of cups.

My method of preparing it is very simple. I mince a couple of garlic cloves into a skillet and add a little water. I let the garlic cook on medium heat for less than a minute and then add all the spinach. I mix it all up, lower the heat way down, and cover. Once it's just barely wilted, I add salt and pepper, stir well, and remove from heat. The residual heat will wilt it a bit more and you don't want it to get too mushy.


  1. Yum, I love spinach too!

  2. I love spinach too and garlic in it only makes it butter.

  3. Spinach rocks. A friend of mine says she put it in just about everything. Last time she went to give blood they said she was very high in iron. Take that omni's who doubt the power of the vegetable.
