Wilted spinach and red onions

It’s easy to tuck the preparations for this tasty spinach into the time between other things. We had it last night…Mike grilled some fish and heated the bread (on the grill too!) while I made the spinach. Dinner in under thirty minutes, easy-peasy!

Wilted Spinach and Red Onions
Olive oil
Red onion, chopped
Clove of garlic, minced
2 T water
1 T soy sauce
Salt and pepper
Red pepper flakes (optional)

10 oz bag of baby spinach

Cook the onion and garlic in the oil in a large skillet. When they are tender, add the water through the pepper, and bring to a quick boil. Lower the heat and put the spinach in the skillet, turning it over to get it all wilted and the dressing spread through. Grate the lemon peel and sprinkle it all over the spinach. Don’t overcook it…you just want a bit of wilt.

Hi Cyndi, We do a similar thing with spinach, BUT I never thought to add the soy sauce. Thanks for that tip!
