This is a dish I stumbled across while I was in China and tried to emulate. Of all my various original recipes, this is the one of my families favorites. It is simple, requires few ingredients and is easy and fast.

Directions

  1. Melt the butter with the canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat until it stops bubbling. This allows the water from the butter to evaporate. Add the garlic; cook and stir for about 2 minutes, until it is just beginning to brown. Put in the spinach leaves and cook for about 5 minutes while stirring, until the leaves are dark and are about 1/4 of their original size.

It never ceases to amaze me how someone can change a recipe 10 ways to Sunday and then give a rating of 3 or 4 because it just wasn't right. Wise up, people! The first time you make the recipe follow it to the letter. THEN rate it and change it to your liking. This is an excellent recipe just as it stands.

My family loves spinach this way; on occasion I have added bacon. Try after sauteing the garlic, turning off the heat and putting the spinach in the pan, covered, and let sit for a few minutes and it wilts perfectly without being overcooked. My kids ate it when they were small and I never had to doctor it or bribe them to eat their spinach; fresh spinach is the only way to go!

I have been making this at home for years, using olive oil instead of canola. I finish by adding salt and fresh ground pepper to taste, and a splash of balsamic vinagar. This is a tasty way to get our greens that even my husband loves.
