This Catalan Spinach recipe makes 4 servings.
Wash the spinach thoroughly under cold running water to remove all sand and debris. Trim off the stems. Steam the spinach for only 2-3 minutes. Remove from pan immediately and allow to drain thoroughly.
Peel and slice the garlic. Pour a few tablespoons of olive oil to cover the bottom of a large frying pan. Heat pan on medium and sauté garlic for 1-2 minutes. Add the currants and pine nuts to the pan and continue to sauté for 1 minute. Add the drained spinach to the pan and mix well, coating with oil. Salt to taste. Lightly toast the slices of bread, cut in quarters and serve on the side of the plate.
