4 cloves garlic
Extra virgin olive oil

How to make Spanish Spinach

  • Trim the stems of the spinach and then wash the leaves by rinsing under running water to remove any dirt. Drain the spinach and pat the leaves dry with kitchen paper.
  • Peel and slice the garlic and then heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the sliced garlic and sauté for a few minutes until it begins to brown.
  • Add the spinach to the pan, pressing down with your hand to get it all in, then turn the spinach a few times to coat it all with garlic and olive oil.
  • Cover and reduce the heat and cook for a minute or so.
  • Turn the spinach over and cook for another minute until the spinach is nicely wilted.
  • Drain any excess liquid and serve immediately with an extra drizzle of olive oil and a little salt to season.
