Spinach with Raisins and Pine Nuts



2 pounds spinach
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons golden raisins
1/4 cup pine nuts
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Yield: 4 Servings


Wash the spinach and trim, if necessary. Heat the oil in a large skillet. Sauté the raisins and pine nuts until golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the skillet, and set aside. Add the spinach to the skillet. Season with salt and pepper to taste, cover, and cook over medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes or until the spinach is wilted. Add the raisins and pine nuts, and toss constantly while cooking for 1 more minute. Serve immediately.
