Adding garlic to simple Sauteed Spinach adds so much more flavor to this easy, healthy side dish. It’s a perfect low-carb option to add to chicken or fish.
This is another one of those side dishes that you can’t get enough of. It’s hardly a recipe either. Sauteed spinach with garlic is a staple in our house weekly.
Simply add the garlic and coconut oil or olive oil to a large covered pan. Add the fresh baby spinach. Cook for about 5-7 minutes until the spinach is completely wilted. That’s it! It’s a crowd-pleaser every single time.
Spinach is loaded with fiber and essential vitamins and minerals like vitamins A, C, iron, and calcium. So be sure to add it to your meals or smoothies several times a week.

And when does the garlic go in? It’s not included in any of the instructions
I’m so sorry I left that out!! Add the garlic with the oil. It’s added now 🙂
How many people does this feed? I need to make this for about 30 people, could you let me know how much spinach, garlic and olive oil I will need?
I would greatly appreciate it.
I have not cooked spinach in ages. Always eat it raw. Not one of hubbies favs, but I have got to try this! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
