Simple Sauteed Garlic Spinach Recipe

Sauteed Garlic Spinach with a bit of crush red pepper.

Yummy fresh side dish! Sauteed Garlic with Spinach is easy to make and quick to cook!




  1. Rinse with cold water and spin the spinach greens with a salad spinner.
  2. In a large skillet or dutch oven, heat a couple of tablespoons of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of finely chopped garlic on medium heat for just under a minute. You just want to have a hint of the essence of the garlic with the oil.
  3. Next, add spinach, salt, and pepper.
  4. Cook for a couple of minutes and give the spinach a stir with your wooden pan paddle. When the spinach is just wilted and still bright green remove from heat and serve immediately.


I used a crushed red pepper to add more heat or texture to the dish. I also loved the little pop of red in the photo.
