Spinach with Garlic and Pine Nuts
This was my side dish last night to accompany left over Paprika Chicken. It takes under ten minutes to cook. I put 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet, heated it to medium. I peeled a clove of garlic and let it sizzle away , then added 1/2 standard grocery bag of spinach. Using a wooden spoon, I stirred the spinach to make sure it was coated with oil. When it was wilted, dark green, and cooked through I tossed in a few pine nuts. Then I sprinkled on a tablespoon or two of Parmesan cheese, tasted and added salt if needed.
And here it is, on a plate with Chicken Paprika( My recipe for this came from George Lang's "The Cuisine of Hungary".)
