This delicious sautéed spinach and garlic butter recipe has a lot going for it.  It’s fast, easy to make, healthy and delicious.

As I was growing up, vegetables were something where mom opened a can of corn, beans, peas or whatever and heated them up.  No wonder I never cared for vegetables… and why parents have trouble getting their kids to eat them!

Now that I have been creating vegetable recipes, I’ve found a delicious new food group (vegetables) that I love eating.  I feel better, don’t crave unhealthy foods and have a better outlook on life.  I should say though, that while I mention kids and eating vegetables in this post, I wouldn’t try this one to get the kids to eat more spinach.  The taste, while delicious, is definitely an adult taste.
