Esparregado (Spinach with olive oil and garlic)

This is one of those portuguese side dishes that I love preparing when we eat Steak. I remember back home we would have a big juicy portuguese steak, homemade fries and Esparregado.

It was the only time you would see me and my brothers eating any sort of veggies without complaining LOL

My kids LOVE it and my husband requests it often, it's so so easy to make and truly delicious.


ESPARREGADO (SPINACH WITH OLIVE OIL AND GARLIC)


Ingredients:

2 spinach bunches (you can use frozen too, just cook them first)
6 tbsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves, chopped or sliced
1 tbsp flour
salt and pepper
milk

In a skillet, add olive oil and garlic, drop in the spinach and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes.

Next add the flour and mix well, slowly stir in milk and continue stirring until you achieve a creamy consistency. Season with salt and pepper and VOILA!

Yummy spinach side dish that everyone will love.

The olive oil is great not only for the health but for the the skin too, because have many antioxidants properties.Some investigations say that can improve the sexual life of peoples who consume olive oil. Only in the cases when the problem is very advanced is necesary to buy viagra but is good take care of us when we have the tools.
