Ah, spinach… we all know it is super healthy for us, but no one really wants to face another soggy and limp pile of grungy leaves. We’re here to the rescue, with the perfect way to ensure that you get a delicious plate of scrumptious nutrition instead…

How exactly do you cook spinach?

If the leaves are fresh and delectable, the secret lies in keeping cooking time to a minimum. All you’ll need is your spinach, some extra virgin olive oil, a few garlic cloves and a few pinches of salt.

You’ll need to prep your spinach by removing thick stems then washing well (grit and even small stones can be a problem otherwise).

Drain and rinse two or three times, and be sure to spin as dry as possible.

Heat your garlic in the oil, then add the spinach.

Heat for a minute under the lid, then lift and stir thoroughly.

Repeat for one more minute, and you’re done!

Drain excess moisture.

Sprinkle with a little more olive oil and salt, and you’re ready to go.

The leaves should look wilted, but not slimy and soggy.

Delectable spinach is only two minutes away.
