Fun Fact: If you saute’ spinach with Olive Oil, Popeye will show up at your front door! It’s a Fact! (just cooking spinach alone won’t do it – it’s Olive Oil that brings his two great loves together)
So, let’s saute’ some spinach!
Why? Because it is yummy and healthy and easy to make! Step by step guide below.
Plus, even if you eat the entire bag of spinach yourself, it’s only 50 calories! – for the WHOLE bag!
Personally I prefer steamed Kale, and actually love it so much I feel the guilt of having binged on something sinful when I eat it!
If you prefer spinach to kale, try it this way. Peggo swears that this is one of the tastiest ways to cook it – second only to cooking hamburgers in a pan, removing the cooked hamburgers and then tossing the spinach into the pan and sauteing in the hamburger juices instead of olive oil.
Step 2: Heat up some Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a pan, just enough to cover the bottom so that the leaves don’t stick.
Step 3: Toss the spinach in the pan and quickly get it moving around – it cooks FAST.
Step 4: Keep it moving until it looks like this, and serve immediately. YUM!
Even if you eat it slathered in butter, it’s still a low calorie and healthy treat!
