SautÃ©ed Spinach takes less than 10 minutes and you will love it. It's better than Popeye's spinach!
SautÃ©ed Spinach is an excellent way to get Vitamin K.
July 16 is National Fresh Spinach Day. I'm a spinach fan and SautÃ©ed Spinach is my favorite way to get Vitamin K. Vitamin K is good for preventing heart disease, helping your blood clot properly, and building strong bones. Besides, spinach tastes good whether you sautÃ© it, eat it raw, put it in a dip, or eat it from the can (at least, I think so)!
Sauteed Spinach adds a nice pop of color to your plate, especially if you are serving something white, like fish or chicken. It's quick to make and you can do it at the last minute because it takes less than 10 minutes to cook.
You can saute just about any kind of green, but some of them, like collards, take longer to cook. It depends on how fragile the leaves are. Collards are tougher and thicker. Kale is more like spinach and sautÃ©s quickly. All of them are good for you!
The flavors are enhanced when you make your greens like this. I know you're gonna wanna eat this.
