I made a ton of changes to this recipe to make it my own. I put the oil, vinegar, garlic, lemon, salt, and pepper into a pot on medium heat. I added the spinach and cooked it until the spinach was soft, but not mushy (like when you steam). Cooking it this way is how you wilt spinach. This recipe is actually having you steam it. All my guests absolutely loved it as it was tasty and spinach done a different way.

I found fresh young spinach in the wholesalers on Saturday, so bought 2 huge bags (that's a total of over 5 pounds!) and we have been eating it since (it is now Thursday) in various forms. I decided to check out AR recipes for somethng different for last evening meal. Selected this one because I had all the ingredients to hand. My only trouble with this recipe is that it has caused marital strife, as my wife asked me why I had waited so long before doing this for her! We had it as a side with grilled Lamb filets and loved that simple meal.

Don't let the name fool you, this "steamed" spinach had a wonderful taste. Very Middleastern flavor that I love. I didn't have pine nuts on hand, and I realize that is why the recipe is high calorie. Left it out and it was still great. It's very easy and quick to make.
