Something you may not know about me; I love spinach. Loooove it, love it, love it. I feel bad for people who don't like it. If I could eat it everyday I would. I try to eat it everyday, whether it be spinach omelets, sauteed spinach, pasta with spinach, whatever. I love it. absolutely hated it growing up. I don't know what happened, my taste buds grew up or something, but now I love it. Why is it that you can hate some foods when you are younger, but love them when you are older? I don't get it because some of the foods that I hated when I was younger, I still hate; mushrooms, raw tomatoes and cantaloupe (I have a serious gag reflex to cantaloupe, just the name induces a little vomit in my mouth, blech.) But, some of the things I hated when I was younger I love now, spinach, eggplant, summer squash, onions - why do I love these now, but not the others?
I got this recipe out of the latest issue of Everyday Food. It's delicious.
Sauteed Spinach with Feta and Pine Nuts
1 bag spinach rinsed, drained and trimmed of large stems
feta cheese for sprinkling
pine nuts for sprinkling
olive oil to coat pan
salt and pepper to taste
Easy peasy lemon squeezy. Heat the oil in the skillet (I added the salt and pepper to the skillet at this time to) add the spinach, as much as will fit in the pan, allow to cook down and add spinach a bit at a time until all is added. When the spinach has wilted down plate and top with feta cheese and pine nuts. Yum. (We served this with grilled salmon and it was perfect.)
