Yield: 2 servings
New quantity:
  • ½ cup plain, whole milk Greek yogurt
  • 1 lb. fresh spinach leaves
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • ½ onion, minced (4 oz)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Freshly ground black pepper
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  1. Measure out your yogurt and place outside the fridge, to allow it warm up a bit. This will help prevent curdling when you add it to the hot spinach later.
  2. Place the spinach in a large, deep skillet. Add 2 tablespoons water. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat, then lower heat to medium and steam the spinach leaves just until wilted, 2-3 minutes.
  3. Drain the spinach leaves in a colander, then place in a clean kitchen towel and squeeze hard, getting rid if most water. Set aside.
  4. Wipe the skillet clean and heat it over medium-high. Add the butter and swirl to coat. Add the onions. Cook, stirring, until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds, then add the spinach, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Stir to combine.
  5. Remove from heat. Add the yogurt, stirring until the yogurt melts into the spinach. Serve immediately.
