Garlic sauteed Spinach in 2 mins | Super Easy Healthy Side-dish | Weight Loss Recipe


Hey guys, here is a quick, flavourful and heart-healthy garlic sauteed Spinach which can be prepared in 2 minutes. Please try and don't forget to comment, like, share & SUBSCRIBE to my channel Curry for the Soul on YouTube for more such easy and delicious recipes.

Spinach, popularly known as superfood is good for our heart, eyes, bone health, brain, fights cancer, prevents Asthma and helps to reduce weight as it is low in calories.

All you need to do is wash and chop some fresh spinach and 3-4 garlic cloves. Heat some coconut oil (instead of butter or any other oil to prevent dementia) and saute garlic until light brown. Add some sesame seeds, some chilli flakes for the kick and the spinach.

Saute the spinach in an open pan until it wilts away. I have added a veg stock cube to enhance the flavour because I want my grand kids also to like it. Kids generally don't like veggies. Tell them that their favourite cartoon character superhero Popeye eats spinach for strength and they will happily eat it.

Since the stock cube has salt, you need to check the salt and then add a bit of salt, if necessary.

Turn off the heat and squeeze little lemon to balance the flavour.

You can serve it as a side dish. It compliments very well with scrambled eggs, chicken, steak dishes, etc.
