Sautéed Spinach with Garlic

Today I thought to spend some time making a very easy and healthy veggie which will be awesome to taste. So I make sautéed spinach with garlic . If you don’t have much time in hand and want something that will be quick to make and great to taste then this sautéed spinach with garlic can be your choice.
Spinach      10 ounce (tough stem removed)
Garlic          2 table spoon chopped
Olive oil      2 table spoon
Pine nut      3 table spoon 
Golden raisin  2 table spoon
Lemon zest    1/2  tea spoon
Lemon juice   1/2  tea spoon
Butter         1/2  tea spoon (optional)
Salt  and pepper  to taste 
In a non stick skillet heat olive oil then add chopped garlic and pine nuts ( you can use less pine nuts but for me I love the buttery nutty crunch). Stir for few second then add the spinach and salt. Stir and cook for 4 to 5 minutes. Then add  freshly ground pepper, lemon zest and golden raisin. Mix well. Remove from heat then add butter and lemon juice, mix it and serve immediately. Instead of butter you can use shaved Parmesan cheese. But as I am on my weight watch schedule so I avoid both butter and cheese. This is an awesome side dish, you can have it with grilled fish and chicken or simply with bread rolls. I am sure you will love it simple yet unbelievably satisfying taste.

One can never go wrong with a classic such as this one. Although, when I think about it...I can't recall the last time I made it.
Thanks for the reminder Sutapa ;o)

Ciao for now,
