Sauteed Spinach

ImagePopeye isn’t the only one crazy for spinach, we love over here at Copper Canyon and Stanford Grill too! Full of vitamin K for calcium and bone health, vitamin A for healthy skin, spinach is considered one of the healthiest foods around. Spinach is also found to lower blood pressure and prevent a number of cancers. If you tend to get bored of spinach, try sauteing it like we do! We love to pair it with our Short Smoked Atlantic Salmon or Canyon Prime Rib. Try this delicious recipe:

1 ½ pounds of baby spinach leaves

2 Tbs olive oil

2 Tbs chopped garlic

2 tsp kosher salt

¾ freshly ground black pepper

1 Tbs unsalted butter

Lemon

In a large, preheated pot heat the olive oil and sautee the garlic for about one minute. Then add the washed and dried spinach. Toss with salt and pepper over heat for about two minutes. Once spinach is wilted, squeeze lemon juice to taste over the spinach. Serve hot and enjoy!
