Seriously. Spinach is loaded iron, fiber, vitamin c and water. When you sauté it, it’s going to shrink down to nothing. 1 lb of spinach, which is about 10 cups, is going to sauté down to just a little mound.
Adding lemon to the spinach helps your body absorb the iron better.
If you like sautéed spinach, do yourself a favor and make extra of this Lemon Garlic Sautéed Spinach. Try serving with Almond and Dill Crusted Cod.
