Her version isn’t quite low-carb/keto friendly, so we had to make some minor adjustments, but still tastes as good and is super easy to cook!
We start by simply mincing up some garlic. From there, we add the spinach into a fry pan with hot neutral cooking oil and cook that for a minute or so. Once the spinach is cooked, we add the minced garlic, sprinkle in some salt, and top with some bonito flakes. That’s it!
Now as a superfood, spinach has a range of health benefits. It’s packed with vitamins and minerals that aid in providing bone health, preventing cancer, and improving blood glucose control in people with diabetes. In addition, spinach is high in fiber and water, both of which help to prevent constipation and promote a healthy digestive tract.
With all these amazing health benefits, it’s no wonder spinach is considered a superfood!
So next time you see spinach at your local grocer don’t hesitate to pick some up and make this delicious quick and easy Garlic Spinach Stir Fry!
For this dish, the only special ingredients you would need is the optional bonito flakes, which can be picked up on Amazon or a local supermarket.
