Spinach with Garlic and Olive Oil

Spinach sautéed with garlic, olive oil and red pepper until is wilts.
Spinach is by far our favorite green vegetable ever!  It has been popular ever since we can remember,  actually since Popeye put it at the top of the list! 

A super food for promoting good health for everyone and popularly known for a great source of Vitamins A, C, K, folic acid and iron! Fresh spinach sautéed with garlic and olive oil is so simple and yet,  so delicious!

We like to incorporate spinach in many recipes as often as possible.  We love spinach simply because it is so versatile!  Cooked or raw,  can be eaten alone, add to salads, soups, casseroles, and even dips.   It is definitely  good for you!  So eat up another healthy green everyone!
