Sauteed Spinach with Pine Nuts & Golden Raisins

I think I could eat plain sauteed spinach every day of the week and be happy, but sometimes it’s fun to dress it up a bit. This recipe from Eating Well puts a Catalan spin on spinach with pine nuts and sweet golden raisins to brighten things up.

INGREDIENTS
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons golden raisins
1 tablespoon pine nuts
2 cloves garlic, minced
10 ounces fresh spinach (see Ingredient Note), tough stems removed
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon shaved Parmesan cheese
Freshly ground pepper to taste

1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add raisins, pine nuts and garlic; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

2. Add spinach and cook, stirring, until just wilted, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in vinegar and salt. Serve immediately, sprinkled with Parmesan and pepper.

Ingredient Note: The sturdier texture of mature spinach stands up better to sauteing than baby spinach and it’s a more economical choice. We prefer to serve baby spinach raw.

I have never tasted kale before and we currently have a huge amount growing in our garden. I looked up recipes, found yours, made it last night and I LOVE IT! I actually made it again this morning for breakfast and will keep making your recipe until I get sick of it. Thanks for helping me get my vitamins!
