A simple recipe for healthy steamed spinach, seasoned with butter, lemon juice and garlic. Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best ones!
Prep Time 2 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 7 minutes
Servings 4 servings
- 1 lb. pre-washed spinach leaves
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Place the spinach leaves in a very large, deep skillet. Add 2 tablespoons of water.
Cover (ideally with a clear lid so you can peek) and turn the heat to medium-high. When the spinach starts to steam, turn the heat to medium, and keep steaming until the leaves are just wilted, about 5 minutes.
Transfer the cooked spinach to a colander. Press on it with the back of a large serving spoon to extract as much liquid as you can.
Transfer the steamed spinach to a serving plate. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder, and drizzle with melted butter and lemon juice. Mix and serve.
