Wilted Spinach with Lemon and Pine Nuts


   1 large bunch of spinach, about 12 cups of leaves
    1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
    1 or 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
    2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
    Salt and pepper
    1 tablespoon pine nuts, toasted


  1. Sort through the spinach, discarding the stems and bruised or yellow leaves. Wash the spinach in plenty of cold water, if it's sandy, was a second time, then spin dry.
  2. Heat the oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and lemon juice and sauté for 1 minute.
  3. Turn the heat to high and add the spinach, 1/4teaspoon salt, and a few pinches of pepper. Wilt the spinach, tossing with tongs to coat the leaves with the hot oil and garlic. (The water left on the leaves after washing will help it to wilt quickly.)
  4. Toss in the pine nuts and add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Serve immediately. Serves four.
