2 large bunches 
spinach, tough stems removed (16 cups) 
2 cloves 
garlic, sliced 
2 tablespoons 
extra virgin olive oil 
¼ teaspoon 
kosher salt 
¼ teaspoon 
freshly ground black pepper 


Wash and dry the spinach. Slice the garlic. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant (do not let brown), about 30 seconds. Add half of the spinach and cook, turning with tongs, until it begins to wilt, about 1 minute. Add the remaining spinach and season with the salt and pepper (12 turns on pepper mill) and continue to cook, turning, until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes.


helpful hints

  • Use a paring knife to thinly slice the garlic from the stem end to the opposite end
  • Once the volume of the first half of the spinach starts to shrink, it’s time to add the remaining half of spinach
  • If you choose to use baby spinach instead, it will take a little less time to cook
