Here’s a quick and simple post for a quick and simple (and delicious!) side dish. Because I am packing, packing, packing and practically drowning in boxes!
One of the many challenges of moving across the country is this: the stuff in your refrigerator has to be GONE. I absolutely hate wasting food, so I always try my hardest to find creative ways to use things up so I don’t have to throw anything out.
This 5-minute Sauteed Spinach with Garlic and Lemon is a great way to use up a lot of greens with very few ingredients (I used baby spinach, but you can use other baby greens as well)– it’s healthy, amazingly easy, and super tasty. If you have a surplus of baby greens, or if they’ve reached that slightly sketchy point where they are *almost* bad, whip up a batch of these sauteed greens so they don’t go to waste!
We had this as a side with lemon pepper flounder, but it’s also very tasty for breakfast in an omelette or with a fried or poached egg and some hot sauce (a great way to eat veggies for breakfast!). This would be excellent mixed into cooked rice, or served with simple grilled chicken.
And it couldn’t be easier to make….
