I didn't care for this way of cooking spinach. I bought a bag of mixed kale, swiss chard, and baby spinach. I realized it was only 5 oz so I cut the recipe in half. I followed the recipe, except I reduced the butter. I figured I could add more later if I needed it. After the 2 minutes, it didn't looked fully cooked and it was tart from the lemon juice. It was also very watery. So, I drained the liquid and spritzed it with olive oil, which I typically cook it in, and added a sprinkle of sea salt. Not sure why the recipe is missing salt unless one uses salted butter. I microwaved it one more minute. It tasted better, and was more cooked, but I guess I just like spinach or greens sauteed and not microwaved. The garlic, butter, or other flavorings just get more caramelized adding to the depth of the overall flavor and texture. Watery tart spinach just didn't work for me. I might be able to salvage it, fortunately, by adding it to another recipe.
