Wilted spinach is an incredibly quick side dish. It takes less than ten minutes start to finish. If walnuts aren’t your thing, you can substitute garlic or onion. The point is to infuse some flavor into the olive oil that coats the spinach.

  • 2 TBSP (approximately) olive oil
  • a small handful of walnuts

In a skillet over medium heat, place the olive oil and walnuts. Stay close by and stir the walnuts occasionally, as their natural oils can burn easily.

Once the walnuts begin to smell toasted, add the spinach and use tongs to turn the spinach until they are wilted as you desire.

  1. This looks delicious! I frequently cook collard greens. I like to cook them either with oil, garlic and spices. Or I add a little bit of vegetable broth to help flavor the greens. Greens sound unappealing to a lot of people, but if you flavor them correctly, they can actually be quite delicious (not to mention healthy)!

    Thank you for sharing this idea!
