  1. Trim the spinach stems, then wash the leaves in several changes of water. Dry using a clean towel or any clean absorbent material.
  2. In a large skillet combine 2 tbsp. of butter with garlic and allow them to heat up together, so the garlic flavor will infuse in the oil. Cook for 1-2 minutes over medium heat until the garlic becomes fragrant and lightly golden.
