Spinach Delight






Culinary Tools: 2-quart Saucepan with cover, Junior Steamer/Colander, 10” Gourmet Skillet, 3-quart Mixing Bowl, Chef’s Knife



  • 1 (10 ounce) package fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1/3 cup sweet onions, minced
  • 1 fresh clove garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup plain, non-fat yogurt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon



With the Chef’s Knife, mince onion and garlic, and chop fresh spinach.  In the 2-quart Saucepan, add spinach and 3 ounces of water.  Cover with the Redy-cook valve open and cook at medium heat.  When the valve whistles, close it and let spinach stand over the stove for 5 minutes.  Drain in the Junior Steamer-Colander; squeeze until barely moist.

Pre-heat the skillet at medium-high heat for 3 minutes.  Reduce heat to medium, add sweet onion and garlic; stir for 2 minutes or until golden-brown.  Remove skillet from stove.  Add spinach and salt; mix well.  Cool to room temperature.

Combine spinach mixture, yogurt, black pepper, and ground cinnamon in the 3-quart Mixing Bowl.  Let stand for 30 minutes.  Cover and refrigerate until chilled.
