  • About


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper
  • 8 ounces (255 g) spinach
  • Salt



In a large deep skillet or sauté pan, or a Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat. When it shimmers, add the garlic and stir with tongs until it’s just golden, about 1½ to 2 minutes. Add the crushed red pepper and pile in the spinach; sprinkle lightly with salt, then toss with the tongs until the spinach is just wilted and starting to stick to the pan, about 2 minutes. Taste and add more salt, if needed (I use a scant ½ teaspoon total). Lift the spinach to a serving bowl and serve.
