Popeye was right - spinach makes you strong. In fact, it's a good source of fiber and calcium. Sauté it with fresh garlic, which is believed to help control blood pressure and lower the risk of cancer.
1 (16-ounce) package fresh spinach
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper, divided
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 medium tomato, chopped
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar (optional)
Salt to taste (optional)
How to Make It
Sauté spinach in hot olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat 2 minutes or until wilted. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Transfer to a serving platter.
Add garlic to skillet, and sauté 1 minute. Stir in chopped tomato, and sauté until thoroughly heated. Stir in remaining 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Spoon mixture over spinach on platter. Drizzle with vinegar, if desired, and serve immediately. Lightly salt to taste, if desired.
