Serving Size: 2/3 cup

Sauteed Spinach

Name: Amount:
spinach leaves, well washed, stems removed 1
extra-virgin olive oil 0.50 Tbsp
butter 0.50 Tbsp
chopped shallots 1 Tbsp
low-fat, low-sodium chicken broth 0.25 cup
salt 0.50 tsp
black pepper 1 tsp

Clean the spinach in a bowl or sink filled with cold water. Make sure to agitate the leaves to remove any sand or dirt that might cling to the spinach.


Heat the olive oil and butter in a pan over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook for about 30 seconds. Add the chicken stock and the spinach, cover tightly, and steam until the spinach is tender, about 3-5 minutes. Remove the spinach from the liquid, season with salt and pepper, and serve.
