“I came up with this recipe after needing to cook a huge bunch of fresh spinach. It's flavorful!” - by summer_aggies00
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Heat olive oil in large skillet over medium-high heat; stir in the garlic and cook until just beginning to brown. Add the fresh spinach and stir to coat with the oil. Season with red pepper flakes, salt, and ground black pepper. Cover the skillet and cook for 4 to 5 minutes. Pour in a little bit of liquid (water or broth) if your skillet seems dry. As the spinach cooks, it will wilt and reduce in size. Once the spinach is cooked through, add raisins and stir for 1 more minute, until heated through.

"Good flavor -- more than a little spicy! A few helpful hints: 12 cups fresh spinach = 1 lb = 1/2 cups cooked spinach. So at the end of this recipe, you'll have about 1 1/2 cups of food. I used dice..." See mored dried apples instead of golden raisins, and this worked well. You'll need a big pot in the beginning in order to hold all the spinach, but it whithers quickly."
"Nice change from the usual! I usually just steam or saute with a little olive oil, garlic and salt & pepper, but was in the mood for something different. Only used 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes and that..." See more was plenty! Added a splash of red wine vinegar before serving, not that it needed it really, but supposedly a little vinegar on your greens will help your body to better absorb the calcium in them."
"Pretty good recipe, although I must admit I altered mine quite a bit. I didn't have golden raisins so I used roughly chopped dried cherries. their tart/sweet combo worked well. I also added slivered ..." See morealmonds and a few splashes of red wine vinegar both suggestions from previous reviews. I noticed before I added the vinegar, this dish was somewhat bitter, but after the addition of the vinegar the bitter was gone and I liked the dish much more. I think I might try making it again."
