Low Sodium Spinach and Garlic


1 tsp. Olive oil
2 clove Garlic, raw (sliced very thin)
16 Ounces Fresh spinach
1/4 tsp. Sugar


Place the olive oil in a large skillet. Place the skillet over medium-low heat and add the garlic. Heat the oil and garlic together slowly. Don't let the garlic turn brown or it will be bitter. Stir occasionally.

When the garlic has cooked for about ten minutes increase the heat to medium-high and add the spinach. Add the salt and sugar.

Cook, tossing frequently, for about 3 minutes until the spinach is wilted. Serve.

Recipe Notes

You do have to like Mr. Darrow for his abilities as a lawyer, and his quote above is so lawyerly. You have to read it a few times to even understand what he means. That said, I do love spinach and this recipe was inspired by a recent trip I took where I ate at a lovely Mediterranean restaurant that served this simple dish.

"I don't like spinach, and I'm glad I don't, because if I liked it I'd eat it, and I just hate it."

Clarence Darrow, Attorney
