Vegan PowerHouse Garlicky Spinach

Garlicky SpinachRemember when your parents will tell you eat your spinach as it will make you strong, well study has shown there is some truth to that. 

The calcium content in spinach is so very good for our bones. and as your dearest is getting to the age where I start worrying about my bones I tend to eat a lot more spinach as well as other green leaf veggies.

I prepare spinach in a variety of ways, I eat it raw in salads, cooked as a side dish , in dips etc! 

If you can try some spinach today , go ahead and do it.

This recipe is very simple and it's done in less than 30 minutes.

Give it a try and let me know how it came out and if you liked it.

Frozen spinach is a good substitute in case you can't find fresh, just use a 10 oz package.
