High School Reunion Diet’s Fantastically Foxy Spinach

You will want a large skillet for this simple method of making spinach (on the Eat It List)—btw, one of the most nutritient-packed green things on planet earth.

You will want an amount of spinach that fills up your large skillet.  Spinach shrinks, so buy plenty per person; two huge handfuls at least, or 12 oz. to a pound each.

Make this spinach dish a staple in your daily diet; the more you eat the more your body gets the health and beauty benefits, and the more quickly you lose weight, improve your skin and recover your youth.

1) Wash spinach very thoroughly in a colander and don’t dry.  Even if it’s pre-washed, rinse it under the faucet.  (It’s safer to rinse it, and you want the spinach wet.)

2) Put the spinach in the large skillet, turn the heat on medium high, and cover.  The water that’s on the leaves will steam the spinach.  Stir ocassionally and cook a couple of minutes, until the spinach wilts.  Drain off any remaining water.

3) Peel a large clove of garlic and cut it in half.  Impale one of the pieces with a fork.  This is what you will use to stir the spinach.

4) Add a couple of tablespoons of olive oil to the skillet.  Turn heat to medium high, and stir the spinach quickly with the garlic on the fork.  Add a sprinkle of kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, and cook 2-3 minutes.

5) Serve with a squeeze of fresh lemon.
