Sautéed Spinach takes less than 10 minutes and you will love it. It’s better than Popeye’s spinach!
July 16 is National Fresh Spinach Day. I’m a spinach fan and Sautéed 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 sauté it, eat it raw, put it in a dip, or eat it from the can (at least, I think so)!
Sautéed Spinach adds a nice pop of color to your plate, especially if you are serving something white, like fish, chicken or pork. 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 sauté 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 sautés 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.
