Rinse them off, drain them a bit and put the still-wet leaves in a skillet and steam them (using the water clinging on the leaves) until they wilt. Remove from the heat. Then stir in some olive oil a little minced garlic, little salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add some lemon juice or cider vinegar and some feta cheese crumbles. If you want to gild the lily, add some bacon bits, too. Serve as a warm side dish.

Saute them in a little butter, salt and pepper,
and enjoy, simple but good. Also use them
on your sandwiches instead of lettuce. Can
also use your left over sauted spinach in
scrambled eggs or anything "florentine". I
imagine you can blanch and freeze, haven't
tried it myself.

Wow, where to start!

simple and easy and very lovely is dropped dry into a deep fryer for 30-45 seconds and hit with some cajun seasoning. This is a great side to any fish dish.

Use in any salad. I also like them in fish quesadillas.......Fresh spinach, diced tomato, mozz cheese and seared _______________<--(any white fish)

Also, saute with EVOO, garlic, parm and a shot of fish sauce*(if you have it)

Rinse, add to a pan with a couple of pats of butter & stir until wilted. Add some chopped garlic, salt, & freshly ground pepper to taste; then finish with a couple of dollops of heavy cream. Heart attack on a plate, but delicious - lol!!!

wilt, then chop and blend with goat cheese, cream cheese, or laughing cow soft cheese. use this mixture to stuff chicken breasts or pork chops.

or use the mixture to make a dip by adding blanched artichoke hearts, bacon bits, and some milk or cream.
