October: Simple Side Veggies

SAUTED SPINACH

The simple things are always the best. I wanted a green to go with salmon one night. So I did the simplest thing possible.

Ingredients:

1 lb spinach
butter
a pinch of nutmeg.

Wash the spinach and wilt it in a frying pan. Swirl in 1 tbsp butter and finish with a pinch of nutmeg. Simple and could not be better.

Serves 1-2. Spinach really cooks down–I remember cooking 6 lbs for 4 of us in Alabama one night.

CELERY

We’re not used to cooked celery, other than braising, but as I had an abundance I tried this.

Ingredients:

1 bunch of celery.  Clean and cut across the stems. Use the leaves as well.
Unsalted Butter, 2-4 tbsp
4 tbsp heavy cream
Salt and pepper

Melt the butter in a saute or fry pan, and add the celery.  Cook until semi-soft.

Add the heavy cream, salt and pepper. Cook until the celery is coated.

Serves 4 – 6 as a side dish.
