While running in to the grocery store to pick up some peanut butter, I spied a fabulous bargain while heading to the cash register yesterday. Big bags of flat leaf spinach for 25 cents a bag! Needless to say, I bought four of them and we ate two of them with dinner. The children love spinach in their salads and in their wrap sandwiches (with chopped turkey and ranch dressing), but they also love it cooked. I always have some kind of mushrooms on hand (as you will discover) so this was a quick and tasty addition to our meal.
Bebe's easy Spinach and Shitake Mushroom Recipe
(More like a technique)1.Wash spinach and dry using a salad spinner
(Or do as my friend Michael used to do, Pop it into a cloth kitchen towel, take it outside and whip it around in the air until the water is gone)
2. Simply saute slices onions and mushrooms in olive oil in a large skillet or wok until cooked
3. Add spinach and toss until leaves are wilted season with salt and pepper. It will just take a min so don't over cook it, Enjoy!
