Sauteed Spinach Supreme

20 Jan


  • 1 Tb salted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 12oz fresh baby spinach, ready to eat
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, roughly chopped
  • 2 Tb dried cranberries, minced
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  •  a dash of black pepper

Rinse, shake dry and trim the stems off of the spinach. Melt butter in a 10″ skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, cook for about 1 minute until fragrant. Add spinach, basil, cranberries, salt and black pepper, toss well. Saute for a minute or so, continually tossing. The spinach is done when it just begins to wilt and is warm, this happens fairly quickly. Serve immediately.

Serve this a side dish, as the base for pork, or chicken,  or toss with pasta. Try adding some roasted nuts or seeds and call it a warm salad.( I am going to try  roasted pine nuts or sunflower seeds.)
