COAST FARMS
is a salad greens and spinach farmer offering delicious and fresh greens for salads, side dishes or holiday editions!

Check out the DELICIOUS recipe for COAST FARMS spinach below!

 


SAUTEED SPINACH & GARLIC FOR THE HOLIDAYS
Serves 8 to 10
4 to 5 Bunches of fresh spinach – COAST FARMS
3 TBLS Fruity Green Olive Oil – PETROU’S or BISTRO BLENDS
1/2 head garlic, peeled and chopped – SAGE MOUNTAIN or RFB FAMILY FARMS
sea salt to taste
fresh squeezed juice of 1/4 lemon – ATKINS FARMS

 

Wash the spinach well.  Shake in a kitchen towel or in a salad spinner to dry thoroughly.  Cook spinach down in two batches by heating half of the olive oil and half of the chopped garlic.  Stir garlic in the hot oil for a minute then add as much spinach as your saute pan will hold, and turn spinach gently as it begins to wilt.  Continue adding spinach and turning until you have used half of the spinach.

 

Salt it to your taste and keep cooking until there is no excess liquid in the pan.  Remove to a bowl and repeat the same procedure.  Once you have finished the second batch, add the first batch back in the saute pan and toss together so everything is hot.  Just before serving, toss with the lemon juice.  Enjoy!  (You can also cut this recipe in half for smaller meals.)
