Lemon Thyme Spinach

Spinach has always been one of those vegetables that people either love or hate. We think anyone who tries this recipe will become a spinach lover. Be sure to use fresh thyme.


  • 6 tbsp. softened butter
  • 4 tsp. coarsely chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 tsp. lightly packed finely grated lemon zest
  • ½ tsp. minced garlic
  • sea salt
  • 2 lbs. stemmed spinach


  1. In a small bowl combine the butter, thyme, lemon zest, garlic, and a generous pinch of sea salt.
  2. Mash with a fork until well blended.
  3. Put several large handfuls of the spinach in a 12-inch non-stick sauté pan. Season with ½ tsp sea salt. Turn the heat to medium high and cook, stirring frequently, until the spinach is mostly wilted, about 1-2 minutes. Repeat until all the spinach is wilted.
  4. Turn off the heat but leave the pan on the burner. Add the butter mixture and toss just until it melts and coats the spinach.
  5. Serve immediately.

Notes: You can make the butter mixture up to 2 day ahead of time. Leave covered in the refrigerator.
