  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 10 ounces fresh spinach
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • In large pot, melt butter over low heat. Add garlic and cook over very low heat just until golden. Add spinach and toss in garlic butter to coat, then cover tightly with lid. Continue to cook over low heat until spinach is completely wilted, about 3-5 minutes. Drain off any excess liquid before serving.


Spinach cooks down by a lot. If you've never cooked fresh spinach, don't be caught off guard by the major difference in volume.
