Sauted Spinach with Mushrooms
For those of you who are totally bored with plain boiled or steamed spinach I recommend this spinach sauted with a shallot, garlic and white button mushrooms. You’re still getting your super healthy greens but in a slightly new form. Mushrooms add different flavor and texture and it’s so good that I could eat it all without sharing.
The ingredients here are for 2 servings. When I was preparing it I was sure it would be enough for 4 people but spinach shrinks so much that a standard 9-10 oz bag can feed only 2 max 3 people as side dish. So obviously if you want to make it as a family side for 4 double the recipe.
Ingredients (2-3 side dish servings):
1 x 10 oz bag of spinach
8 white mushrooms
2 shallots, diced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/8 tsp grated nutmeg
1 Tbsp parmesan
Slice mushrooms into thin slices.
In a skillet heat the olive oil and add shallots, mushrooms and garlic.
Saute on a medium heat for 5 min stirring often.
Add spinach ( you might want to do it in portions), sprinkle with salt, cover and saute on a fairly low heat for 10 min until spinach is completely wilted.
Season with pepper and mix mushrooms with spinach evenly.
Serve with a bit of parmesan sprinkled on a top.
