Spinach with Garlic and Pine Nuts

Spinach with Garlic and Pine Nuts

1/2 pound spinach leaves, tough stems removed (31/2 to 4 C. loosely packed)

1/2 T. extra-virgin olive oil

1 T. pine nuts

1 garlic clove, sliced

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


Wash spinach and spin dry, leaving some droplets of water on leaves.  Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add pine nuts and cook, stirring frequently, until lightly golden, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook 1 minute more.  Add spinach to the pan, in batches if necessary, and sauté until starting to wilt, 30 seconds. Cook, stirring and tossing frequently until all spinach is wilted and liquid is absorbed, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
