      I’m not sure how to take this. Does Homer hate it? I’ve never watched The Simpsons but I think I can assume.

      • Laura says:

        no, no… that’s Homer drooling over it. He usually does that when there are donuts around…

          I really just wanted to see if it would work, putting an image in the comments section. it seemed appropriate, since that’s the first thing that popped in my head when I saw this recipe. I think I’m going to make it, except I’m adding some shrimp to the mix, too.

        LOL!!! Spinach is hard to eat differently. That’s why I thought this looked good.

      • Joy says:

        How did you do that? It looks great.

        I was thinking of adding small bits of chicken but shrimp sounds awesome too. I like meat!

          To put in a pic… I put in a quick comment (in this case, “glaaaghghghgh”), and posted it. Then I clicked on “edit”, took out the word, and clicked on “img” above the text box, and put in the http: where the image appeared (I had to do a google search to find the image, and then click it until it was a stand-alone .jpg). It inserted the address with some computer-speak stuff, and once that was there, I clicked, “update comment”, and it appeared. It’s easy once you do it.

    I do really like spinach, fresh in a salad. I have never had it cooked, other than in my lasagna. I do really like garlic too!! A LOT! This sounds good.

    Homer was right. This is drool-worthy!

    I made a few adaptations…

    First, please note that to reduce this recipe, 1 clove = 1 cup of spinach (I had a 5 oz thing of raw spinach in my fridge, and there’s no way I could do the entire thing for one person…and that was less than 10 cups. I used 3 cloves and 3 cups of raw spinach)

    I used light sesame oil, not toasted

    I had big garlic cloves, so after they cooked a bit, I cut them in large chunks.

    I added shrimp to the end of the garlic cooking – when they were pretty golden, but not quite ready yet. The shrimp cooks FAST.

    I left out the hot pepper flakes, ’cause I don’t do hot pepper.

    I would advise being a little more generous with the salt if you add some sort of meat. My shrimp needed extra.

    Dang, this stuff is GOO-OOOD.

      oh, yeah… and when they say a “splash”, they mean a SPLASH!!! It’s just in there to speed the wilting process, so if you put too much in, you’ll have garlic-spinach soup. Not that I know this by experience of course… (whistling and avoiding eye contact)

    Looks good.I have fresh spinach in the fridge now..wonder if the hubby would mind this tonight.Id love it Im sure…now I suppose the sesame oil gives it a diff. flavor thats needed or can I use vegie oil?mmm..Ive never used sesme oil,may have to now.OH.Laura good idea about the shrimp!

    • Joy says:

      Sesame oil does add a really unique different taste to stuff and we love it. Let us know if you liked it.

    • Laura says:

      I used “raw” sesame oil… Steve likes “toasted” sesame oil, but to me that flavor is too strong. I liked it just fine with the lighter flavor of the regular stuff. I didn’t use veggie oil at all, I just did everything in the sesame.
