Sautéed Spinach With Peanuts

This is one of my favourite Asian veggie dishes. Change up the nuts to cashews or almonds if you have a problem with peanuts. A word about spinach, my husband says that the spinach available in a bag has no flavour & so the drill in our house is to buy bundles & wash it ourselves, then spin it dry like lettuce. I agree with him, it really is better. Same goes for spinach salad, just tastes fresher! This couldn’t be any easier or faster!

Makes 2 Servings


1 Tbsp. vegetable oil, such as canola or other flavourless oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 lbs. fresh spinach
¼ cup unsalted dry-roasted peanuts, chopped
Pinch red pepper flakes
2 tsp. tamari or other soy sauce or to taste

In a wok or large skillet, heat the oil over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking & sauté the spinach, nuts, red pepper flakes, garlic & soy sauce, stirring until tender, about 1 minute; season to taste with salt & pepper.
