Cooking spinach makes it healthier
Spinach contains a lot of vitamins and minerals (like vitamin A, vitamin K, magnesium and manganese), but you’re unable to absorb some of those minerals if you eat spinach raw.
This is because raw spinach has high amounts of phytates, which can act as an antinutrient preventing your from absorbing some of the good stuff in spinach.
Luckily, when you cook spinach like sautéing it, most of the phytates get deactivated so you end up with a delicious as well as a more nutritious dish.
Keto Garlic Spinach Saute Recipe Instructions
Place the avocado oil (or olive oil) into a sauté pan.
Add in the spinach. If all the spinach won’t fit into the pan at first, then add some of the spinach, wait for it to cook down, and then add the rest of the spinach in. Spinach cooks down a lot, so what may look like a lot of raw leaves will end up being a very small cooked portion.
When the spinach is all cooked down (the leaves look like they’re wilted), add in the chopped garlic and salt to taste. Sauté for 2 minutes more to get the garlic flavor into the dish. If you don’t have fresh garlic available, then you can use garlic powder instead.
