Fruity Nutty Spinach

Fruity, nutty spinach

Including nuts in your diet can provide a host of health benefits. The list includes lower cholesterol levels, reduced risk for heart disease and stroke, better weight control, and lower insulin needs for people with diabetes.


  • 2 tbsp. chopped walnuts, toasted

  • 1 tsp. olive oil

  • 1 9-oz. bag of fresh spinach (about 4 cups raw)

  • 2 tbsp. golden raisins


Heat a frying pan and add chopped walnuts. Shake the pan to turn the nuts. When you start to smell them toasting, turn off the heat. Transfer toasted nuts to a bowl.

Remove stems from spinach. Rinse and drain in a colander and pat with a paper towel. Heat oil in the frying pan and sauté spinach until soft and bright green. Add raisins and nuts and stir until hot. Serve immediately.
