Wilted Baby Spinach with Garlic

Serves 4


1 pound of baby spinach or regular spinach
2 or 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon of unsalted butter
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


Wash and drain the spinach, but do not dry.  Heat the olive oil and butter in a heavy pan over medium heat until the butter is melted.  Add the garlic and sauté for about 1 minute.  Add the spinach and cook until  it is wilted and turns a dark bright green, stirring occasionally, about 2 to 3  additional minutes.  Remove from heat and add salt and pepper, to taste.
