The picture doesn't do this justice, but this is a good way to prepare steamed spinach.
Adapted from Martha Stewart's What to Have for Dinner
I N G R E D I E N T S :
1 pound spinach, about 2 bunches (I just used a bag of the frozen stuff)
Juice of 1/2 lemon (I just used a small wedge)
Salt and freshly ground pepper (for the salt, I used coarsly ground kosher salt)
1 tsp. unsalted butter (optional. I did not use)
I added some freshly grated parmesan cheese
D I R E C T I O N S :
Wash spinach in several changes of cold water until free of sand. Remove stems.
(-OR-Just use the frozen stuff :))
Place a metal steamer in a medium saucepan filled with 1 inch of water. Bring to a boil. Add spinach, cover, and steam for about 3 minutes, or until just wilted. Remove from steamer and season with the lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Toss with butter if desired (I added the parmesan cheese at this point, and tossed).
