This is a regular at our house. We love it...including my kids!

Taking off from my wife's traditional way of doing greens and combining it with a little something I learned from an African friend of ours, I ended up with a dish that is cheap, quick, very tasty and pretty healthy - a big win!

Note: we used to use a little bacon grease to start, but now we just use olive oil - much healthier that way.

Ingredients

  • 1-2 Tbsp
    olive oil, extra virgin (or bacon, goose or duck fat)
  • 1 large
    bag frozen spinach leaves
  • 1-2 pinch
    kosher salt
  • 4-5 dash(es)
    onion powder

    vinegar (white or apple cider)

How to Make Sautéed Spinach

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oil (or bacon grease, duck or goose fat) in a well-seasoned cast iron skillet (or non-stick pan) over medium heat.
  2. When hot, dump fresh or frozen spinach in skillet - it may sizzle a bit. If using frozen spinach, try to break up any large chunks.
  3. Sprinkle on salt and onion powder. Stir often.
  4. Add liquid smoke, vinegar and hot sauce. (adjust to taste)
  5. Cover for a minute or two if needed to fully thaw any remaining frozen pieces and steam a little bit.
  6. Remove cover (if applicable) and stir in butter.
  7. Serve hot and enjoy!
