Wilted Spinach with Dried Cherries and Pine Nuts

 Have you ever heard your body talking to you?
And it says, "I need iron and vitamins."
I have been on the go non stop for the last few weeks,
and my body finally got tired,
and SICK.
So I headed to the grocery store in search of iron and vitamins
for my sick body.
I found spinach!
I bought 1 whole pound of spinach, brought it home, wilted it,
and ate it all.
Does my body feel better?
It sure does....
Wilted Spinach with Dried Cherries and Pine Nuts

1 lb. baby spinach
1 c. balsamic vinegar
1/2 c. white onion, diced
4 garlic cloves, sliced
1/4 c. dried cherries
2 TBS olive oil
1/4 c. pine nuts
salt to taste

In a saute pan cook the onion until translucent in the olive oil.
Add the garlic and stir so it doesn't burn (about 1 minute).
Add the balsamic vinegar
Bring to a boil and reduce mixture to half.
Add spinach leaves and cook until wilted (about 2-5 minutes).
Move the spinach to a serving bowl.
Add pine nuts and dried cherries and mix together.
Add salt to taste.
Serve warm.

    1. Thanks for stopping by Marsha. I am for sure taking care of myself. I now live in the city where choices are endless.....I am surrounded by organics, whole foods, and closeness (walking distance). I keep a bowl of fresh fruits and veggies in my kitchen at all times.
