Spinach and ‘Shrooms

There’s a lady on T.V. who cooks some really great-looking recipes. She subscribes to the 80/20 theory of eating 80% healthful and giving yourself 20% treats (read unhealthy, but usually sweet, sometimes salty, and among the things that Bob Harper wouldn’t approve of). She’s an inspiration. I should do more than nod my head in agreement.

In the spirit of good eating and healthy recipes, here’s something I threw together that actually tasted pretty good. Caveat: Unless I’m following a recipe, I don’t measure when I cook. In the recipe below, I am giving you a calculated guess on the measurements since – altogether now – I don’t measure when I cook. Therefore, make it work by adding or subtracting as you desire.

Spinach and ‘Shrooms

  • 1/4 c. olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 1/4 c. mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 handful of cherry tomatoes, halved

Sautee in skillet on medium/medium high heat for around 5 min.IMG_3769

Add 5 oz. fresh baby spinach and cover (glass lid preferable). Steam at same temperature for a couple of minutes until spinach wilts. It won’t take long.

Sprinkle with feta cheese. Salt and pepper to taste.
