Simple Sautéed Spinach

It’s embarrassing to call this a recipe but I remember a time when I really didn’t know how best to turn a bag of spinach into anything besides a spinach salad.  When you’re not feeling crazy creative, this is a simple, solid go-to for delicious sauteed spinach.

Simple Sautéed Spinach


  • olive oil spray - (I use my misto)
  • shallots - 1/4 c, finely diced
  • raw baby spinach - 12 oz
  • lemon juice - to taste
  • salt and pepper - to taste


Heat a large skillet over medium heat and spray with olive oil. Add shallots and saute for 3-4 minutes until translucent.

Add spinach and, using tongs, turn the spinach so it wilts evenly. When spinach is just wilted, about 2-3 minutes, remove from heat (spinach will continue to cook). Season to taste and serve with a squirt of lemon juice or splash of balsamic vinegar.
