Spinach is one of the most nutritious vegetables, containing iron, potassium and vitamins A and C.


  • 2 lb. spinach 
  • 1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil 
  • 1 tsp. grated lemon zest 
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic 
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste 


Rinse the spinach carefully in 2 or 3 changes of water, discarding the tough stems and any damaged leaves. Drain briefly in a colander.

In a deep sauté pan or a wok over medium-high heat, combine the olive oil, lemon zest and garlic. When the garlic begins to sizzle, after about 30 seconds, immediately add the still-damp spinach and, using tongs or 2 wooden spoons, toss and stir quickly until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes.

Transfer the spinach to a warmed serving dish and sprinkle with a pinch of salt and a grind of pepper. Serve immediately. Serves 4.
