This literally takes 5 minutes to cook and just a couple to prepare, especially if you have a handy dandy garlic chopper.
The spinach wilts in no time and you can make this as mild or as spicy as you wish by adjusting the amount of red pepper flakes. Serve with Rice and Pasta with Parmesan Cheese and Crock Pot 20 Clove Chicken for a great complete meal under 400 calories.
58 calories per serving
2 t olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 bags prewashed baby spinach leaves
Salt and pepper to taste
¼ t red pepper flakes
¼ t garlic powder
Heat the Pam and oil in a large skillet. Stir in minced garlic and sauté a minute or two on medium heat. Do not let the garlic brown or it will taste bitter. Pour in the 2 bags of spinach. It seems like a HUGE amount, but it will cook down to nothing in no time. Add all the spices and continue to sauté on medium heat, 2-3 minutes or until leaves are all wilted.
