In honor of Tiger Woods’ bevy of lady side dishes – here’s my favorite side dish! Dudes, if you like spinach, this is THE way to prepare it. It’s a quick and easy solution to “Soooo….what ELSE is for dinner?” — and THIS side dish won’t cost you a televised apology.

15 minutes and 1 skillet. Easy.

What You’ll Need:
1 skillet

Reference Photos:


  1. Heat the skillet on medium high for about 2 minutes. Add olive oil and minced garlic. Let sautee for about a minute.
  2. Add the bag of spinach. It will completely fill the pan. Don’t worry, it’ll compress – cover and cook for 2 minutes.
  3. Uncover the pan and let it cook for another 2-3 minutes on high heat, or until all of the leaves have wilted.
  4. Serve it up hot!

Enjoy, dudes!

    OK but you gotta pick the spinach first. Pick off the stems it makes a huge difference.
