Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup (2 ounces) pine nuts
  • 10 ounces fresh spinach leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups fresh basil leaves

Preparation

  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Add the pine nuts and cook until lightly golden, about 3 minutes. Increase heat to medium and add the spinach, salt, pepper, and 2 tablespoons of water. Cover and cook, tossing occasionally with tongs, until the spinach wilts, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat. Add the basil and toss until it wilts, about 1 minute. Serve immediately.

    Tips:
    - Serve this quick side dish with grilled chicken, fish, lamb, pork, or steak. Or toss it with pasta for a last-minute main dish.

    - If you can’t find basil, just omit from the recipe.
