Two cups of spinach contain enough micronutrients to cover 50% of your daily needs. Spinach is packed with dietary fiber and it’s high in protein. Top it up with olive oil and you have a fantastic meal all on its own. To upgrade it, serve it with roasted tofu or eggs.
For this recipe we recommend you use frozen spinach - you can take it directly from the freezer. Using fresh spinach for sauteing is just wasteful, save it for salads instead. Keep a bag or two of frozen spinach in your freezer and you can always make this dish at any time.
If you are using cold pressed olive oil you don’t want it to sit in the pan for too long. Add it at the end of cooking.
