Lemon Sautéed Spinach

Lemon Sautéed Spinach
This is a super easy side dish to get a little extra iron in your diet. We cook this one with our savory chicken bites and even the kids eat them up! Not your stereotypical “bitter spinach” recipe. 
  •     1 bag of baby spinach
  •     ¼ cup of pine nuts
  •     3 cloves of chopped garlic
  •     1 tbsp of olive oil
  •     1 lemon
  •     Salt and pepper to taste 
  1. Pre-heat medium saute pan over medium heat for 2-3 minutes
  2. Add olive oil
  3. Add a portion of the baby spinach to the pan(the whole bag may not fit in the saute pan but as it cooks, it will shrink).
  4. Stir frequently continuing to add spinach until entire bag is added.
  5. Cook spinach until soft and limp.
  6. Add chopped garlic and pine nuts.
  7. Stir spinach, garlic and pine nuts in pan until garlic and pine nuts are slightly browned.
  8. Salt and pepper to taste
  9. Squeeze a bit of fresh lemon juice over spinach before serving
