CSA Tuesday: New Zealand Spinach Saute
Farmer Rich is always surprising us with one mysterious green or another. This week it was New Zealand Spinach. I find it far fuzzier than ordinary spinach but just as easy to prepare. This quick saute (5 minutes) makes for a perfectly simple side dish. I made it for lunch yesterday (and I nearly never get near the stove at lunchtime) along with some sliced tomatoes and smoked trout.
New Zealand Spinach Saute
1 bunch New Zealand spinach or regular spinach (stems removed , rolled and julienned)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1. Cook garlic in about 2 tablespoons olive oil for a minute or two.
2. Toss in greens and stir until wilted.
3. Add vinegar, salt and pepper and cook a few minutes more.
