Garlic Spinach

Garlic Spinach

This family favorite is loaded with sweet caramelized garlic.
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil plus 2 teaspoons if needed
1 (6-ounce) jar peeled garlic cloves or 2 heads garlic, cloves peeled
Kosher salt, to taste
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 to 4 pounds cleaned fresh spinach leaves, heavy stems removed
Salt and fresh-ground black pepper, to taste
Method of Preparation

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine 2 tablespoons olive oil, garlic cloves and kosher salt. Spread garlic mixture in a baking pan and roast, stirring occasionally, 15 to 20 minutes until well browned. Set aside.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat and drain oil from roasted garlic cloves into skillet. Add an additional 2 teaspoons oil to pan if it seems very dry. Add spinach and saute 3 to 5 minutes over high heat until spinach leaves wilt. Add reserved roasted garlic cloves and mix well with spinach. Season with salt and pepper. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
