Calories Per Serving


  • 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.
