Spinach With Garlic and Pine Nuts

Makes 2 (3/4-cup) servings

Prep time: 10 minutes
Start to finish: 8 minutes

1/2 pound spinach leaves, tough stems removed (3 1/2 to 4 cups loosely packed)
1/2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon pine nuts
1 garlic clove, sliced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1. Wash spinach and spin dry, leaving some droplets of water on leaves.
2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add pine nuts and cook, stirring frequently, until lightly golden, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook 1 minute more.
3. Add spinach to the pan, in batches if necessary, and saute until starting to wilt, 30 seconds. Cook, stirring and tossing frequently, until all spinach is wilted and liquid is absorbed, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and serve.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
