Guest Post – Garlic & Lemon Laced Spinach

I’m not a big fan of the taste of cooked spinach but when my husband made today’s recipe I was very pleasantly surprised by how delicious it was. Check out his recipe for Garlic & Lemon Laced Spinach below and be sure to visit One Hungry Dude on Facebook!

While watching Paula Deen's Paula's Best Dishes on The Food Network recently, I was surprised to see her make a recipe that was actually somewhat healthy. Deen likes to cook with butter, and other food with a generally high fat content — which can result in delicious meals, but problems for a waistline. While this recipe was modified slightly from the original version, it is a fantastic and easy addition to a dinner meal, and really complements beef or other hearty entrees well. I actually made this for the first time earlier this week, when a friend joined us for dinner, and everyone really seemed to be impressed by the simplicity of the dish.

• 2 Tbsp Margarine
• 1 clove Garlic, minced
• 1 five ounce package of fresh Spinach
• 1 Tsp Lemon Juice
• Salt and Pepper, to taste

Place the margarine and garlic in a sauce pan or large pot, and bring to medium heat. Stir frequently, until the garlic begins to brown, about five minutes. Lower the temperature by half, and add the spinach, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Continue to stir until the leaves begin to wilt, about three to five minutes, then serve.
This recipe yields about six servings.
