  • Potatoes and spinach. These are the two main ingredients in this recipe and are found in the most popular family meals and vegetable side dish ideas available. They are fabulous vegetable side dish ideas separately, but the combination of the two is a wonderful way to bring baby spinach nutrition to a meal, especially if you are serving picky eaters. Almost everyone is happy to indulge in mashed potatoes as it is one of those side dishes we find on the table on many American holidays or with the most popular family meals. When we add sautéed spinach on top of garlic and pine nuts, the depth of the flavor expands and so do the textures. Baby spinach nutrition is full of many nutrients such as iron, and Vitamins A, C, E, and K, just to name a few.

    Directions

    1. Boil potatoes in a large pot until fully cooked and soft.

    2. Mash potatoes with 1 tablespoon butter or oil, salt, and pepper with a potato masher, or put in a food processor to mash. Set potatoes to the side.

    3. Place remaining oil or butter in a large skillet, then add minced garlic.

    4. Add baby spinach to skillet and cook until soft, about 3-5 minutes. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste.

    5. Place the sautéed spinach over the potatoes and top with Eatnuts.com Pine Nuts.

    6. You can serve and prepare each dish individually, place it in a large dish with spinach on top of potatoes, or mix it all together and serve.

    Your taste buds experience a fusion of garlic sautéed spinach and mashed potatoes with an occasional pine nut sneaking in and bringing forth a new texture and experience for the mouth. This recipe is so good with steak, chicken, fish, or as a side to any of your most popular family meals.
