Sauteed Spinach and Peppers Recipe

We often steam our fresh spinach and eat it plain. But this version dressed up with red pepper, onion and garlic is a nice change. It is really quick and tasty—and pretty, too.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 19, 2014

"I used this as a base for marinated baked tofu, and it was a success. I used an Asian marinade of soy sauce, ginger, chopped green onion and garlic chili paste....and dusted my tofu squares with corn starch before baking. I also added sliced, fresh mushrooms. A very tasty, filling dinner."
