Stir-fried Spinach with Garlic
I am going to share a very easy stir-fry spinach dish here. I love to buy the packet prewashed baby spinach when it goes on sales for $1 each. It comes cleaned and cut so all I have to do is to throw the whole pack in. However, even though it said prewashed, it is still best to give it a rinse under running water. As sometimes they might missed a spot of dirt hidden under the leaves. I had it happen to me before so I know, we definitely do not want to ruin a whole plate of vegetable because we keep eating dirt. So, I still recommend you to rinse it first before throwing all in a wok to stir-fry.
1 packet of baby spinach, rinsed
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
Salt, to taste
1 tsp. Chicken stock granules
In a heated wok, add in cooking oil. When heated, add in garlic, fry until slightly golden, add in the spinach. Stir-fry quickly and season with salt and chicken granules. The spinach will release water, so you don't have to add any water. Serve hot.
