This is a delicious recipe that captures the very essence of spinach. Now that prewashed spinach is available in almost every supermarket, you can prepare this dish in minutes. —Helen Nash
- 20 Ounces pre-washed spinach
- 1 1/2 tablespoons pine nuts
- 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
Step 1: Break the stems off the leaves of 20 ounces of pre-washed spinach and discard.
Step 2: In a toaster oven on the lowest setting, roast 1 1/2 tablespoons pine nuts for 1 or 2 minutes, until they are golden. (Watch them carefully, as they burn quickly.)
Step 3: Heat a wok over high heat until hot. Add 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil. Add the spinach and stir quickly until it is just wilted, no more than a minute. Season with salt and pepper. With a slotted spoon, transfer the spinach to a serving dish. Sprinkle the roasted pine nuts on top.
