Buttered Spinach

Spinach is one of the most nutritious vegetables you can eat, especially if you have it raw or slightly wilted, maybe in a salad or made into a spinach pesto. But sometimes you just want to splurge with your vegetables and dress them up a little. That’s what this recipe does, thanks to a generous amount of butter and some seasoning. You could even consider this to be comfort food that you can (kind of, at least) feel good about eating.

You’ll need spinach leaves, butter, salt, and onion powder.

Put some water in a pot, maybe an inch and a half or so. Fill the pot with roughly chopped spinach leaves. Put over high heat and bring to a boil, then lower the heat to a simmer, pressing down the leaves and stirring them gently with a wooden spoon as you go, just until the leaves have fully boiled down. Turn off the heat. Keeping the spinach in the pot, drain the spinach over the sink by pressing out all the water with the spoon. Quickly put in a generous amount of butter, salt to taste, and a little bit of onion powder. Stir until the butter is melted, then serve.
