Author Notes: I thought that this would be a great side for my pork schnitzel....and it was! —inpatskitchen
Makes: about four side servings
tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
medium leek, white and pale green part only
large garlic cloves, minced
teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
ounces baby spinach leaves
One 14-15 ounce can of white beans, drained and rinsed (your choice)
Juice of one half lemon
- Slice the leek lengthwise and then crosswise in quarter inch pieces. Heat the oil in a large saute pan and then add the cut leeks. Saute them over medium heat until they soften and then add the minced garlic.
- The garlic will become fragrant after a minute or two. Once that happens stir in the salt, red and black peppers.
- Stir in the spinach and saute until just wilted. Add the beans and cook until heated through. Squeeze the lemon juice over and serve.
