Garlic Spinach Stir Fry


Jump to Recipe

If you read our Japanese Spinach Salad post, you would know how much we love our spinach!  Spinach is readily available throughout the year, healthy, and very easy to cook with, so we do have quite a few recipes here on LCA for this wonderful green!  This recipe is probably the newest addition to all of our spinach recipes and was inspired from my Mother-In-Law’s spinach stir fry!   Her version isn’t quite low-carb/keto friendly, so we had to make some minor adjustments, but still tastes as good and is super easy to cook!  Hope you enjoy cooking this recipe for your next veggie side!
