toasted pine nuts
freshly ground black pepper
This dish was excellent! Truly simple and delicious! But I confess - after reading the directions, I ignored them (two steps??). I also didn't measure or time anything properly, but no matter - this couldn't go wrong unless you have the heat too high. My simplified version: Saute the garlic (and a julienned red pepper) in the oil (just until the pepper slightly loses its brightness). Add the damp spinach and stir to wilt, then add pine nuts, salt and pepper. Cook until you're happy with the consistency by simmering a few minutes longer at med-high to reduce any extra liquid. I sprinkled each serving with a scant tsp of finely grated mild cheese, and this was fabulous. I added the red pepper for a little extra flavour and a bit of visual pop. Definitely a keeper, and most likely a regular dish in our house from now on. Thanks for sharing!!
Hmmm, just two teaspoons of olive oil for three pounds of spinach doesn't seem nearly enough to me. I just drizzle, but I know I use considerably more. This was the first time I added pine nuts, which I toasted in the microwave, and I don't think they did anything to improve this.
I've made a similar recipe before with one variation: I toast the pine nuts in the oven before adding them to the spinach and garlic...everybody loves it!
Love this, but we ALWAYS add raisins (equal amount to pine nuts). Raisins, pine nuts and spinach were made to go together.
This is my favorite way to prepare spinach. I add golden raisins and salt to this recipe. If you are looking to cut down the fat, it is delicious without the pine nuts, too. (In which case I strongly encourage the raisins.)
I love spinach and pine nuts. This recipe is delicious! My kitchen smelled great after making it.
I never thought I would eat spinach .. this recipe has changed my way of thinking!
This was really good, I even forgot to toast my pine nuts which I'm sure would have made it much better! I only suggest adding a bit of fresh nutmeg, it gives it a little something extra!
