Spinach with Pine Nuts and Raisins: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 2
This side dish will be even more delicious if you use flavorful vegetable broth.


  • 2 Tbs vegetable broth or water
  • 1 10-ounce package baby spinach leaves (or two 5-ounce packages)
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp minced or crushed garlic
  • 2 Tbs pine nuts, lightly toasted
  • 2 Tbs raisins
  • freshly ground black pepper


  • Place the broth or water and spinach in a medium-size microwave-safe bowl (if using a microwave) or pot (if using the stove). Cover the bowl with a plate, or the pot with a lid.
  • Microwave the bowl on high for 1 minute, or cook the spinach in the pot over medium high heat for 1 minute.
  • Remove from the heat, and stir in the salt, olive oil, and/or garlic. Serve hot, warm, or at room temperature, topped with pine nuts, raisins, and a grind or two of fresh black pepper.
