Just remember: heat oil, rinse greens, toss in oil, cook until tender, and serve. I have written the recipe out below if you need it.
My favorite way to eat them is served with two over medium eggs. The yolk adds great flavor to the sauteed greens.
I also will on occasion season the greens with balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Really, use what you like and what you would normally dress your spinach with.
Enjoy this simple recipe!
