Braised Spinach with Garlic and Tomato

  • Yield 4 servings

Loaded with iron, vitamins and folate, spinach is indeed a power food.

Serve as a side dish or over pasta, couscous or grilled eggplant. Sprinkle on a handful of feta cheese if you like.


2 teaspoons olive oil
3 garlic cloves
2 medium tomatoes, chopped
1 tablespoon minced fresh dill
6 cups fresh spinach leaves, well-washed and chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  1. Heat oil in a nonreactive large saute pan or skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and saute 30 seconds until it begins to brown. Add tomatoes and dill. Cook 2 minutes until a chunky sauce forms. Add spinach and mix well. Continue to saute 2 minutes until spinach is wilted. Season with salt and pepper.
