Sauteed Baby Spinach with Garlic and Blue Cheese

There are times when I have leftover ingredients and need to play around in the kitchen to use them up.  A while back, I had about half a bag of baby spinach and perhaps half a cup of  crumbled blue cheese, and this is what I came up with.

It's very quick to throw together, and the amounts are adjustable depending on how many people you're serving.  Here's how I made it for two people.

Sauteed Baby Spinach with Garlic and Blue Cheese

  • 1 to 2 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 cups baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
Finely mince garlic gloves.  Add to a 12-inch non-stick skillet and saute in olive oil over medium-high heat until tender and fragrant.

Reduce heat to medium and add spinach, stirring to toss, until wilted, no more than five minutes.

It always amazes me how much spinach cooks down.

Add the blue cheese and stir toss, about one minute.

Transfer to a bowl to serve.

That's it!  This goes great with chicken or fish.
