These days everyone incorporates fresh baby spinach into smoothies, dips and in salads, and rarely makes it into a side dish anymore; at least I think so.

We love sauteing fresh spinach and we make it often.  Even our spinach with garlic and olive oil is still one of our favorites!

Sauteed spinach with tomatoes, garlic and olive oil is my husbands recipe.  Easy and quick to make, his spinach dish always turns out sensational!  No need to embellish with extra ingredients or weigh it down with creams or cheese.  Simple and most delicious tasting!

Keep in mind that spinach practically shrinks to nothing when it’s sauteed.  So you can add in as much spinach as you need for your family.

How to Make Sauteed Spinach with Tomatoes:

  • In a medium size skillet, heat olive oil and add the garlic.  Simmer on low heat for a few minutes, stirring until the garlic is translucent, about 2 minutes.

  • Toss in the diced tomato and saute for a few minutes, until tomatoes softens.  Season with a little salt and pepper, to taste.

  • Toss in the baby spinach, and cover with a lid.  Simmer on low flame for about 2 to 4 minutes.  Stirring occasionally the spinach to infuse all the flavors together.  Spinach will be done as soon as it wilts.

  • Taste, and season with salt and pepper, if desired.  Turn off heat and transfer to a serving plate and serve.

 Sauteed Spinach with Tomatoes is a wonderful recipe and will become a favorite side dish!

ENJOY!!
