Spinach in White Wine with Sauteed Mushrooms
Six ounce spinach packs and and five ounce containers of mushrooms are frequent purchases of The 99 Cent Chef. A delicious combination. Sauteed mushrooms go with anything, especially spinach steamed in 99.99 cent white wine. This vegetarian side is quick and easy to assemble. For an extra decadent flavor (vegetarians, stop reading) sautee mushrooms with a couple of slices of bacon and crumble bacon over the finished dish.
6 oz. package of spinach (or one bunch - remove stems and wash)
5 oz. container of button mushrooms
2 tbsp. 99.99 cent white wine
2 tbsp. 99.99 cent olive oil blend
Salt and pepper mushrooms to taste
Season and sautee mushrooms in two tbsp. 99.99 cent olive oil blend over medium heat for about five minutes until tender. In a separate pot, add 2 tbsp. 99 cent white wine to 6 oz. spinach leaves, cover and steam for five minutes over medium/low heat. When both are done, drain excess liquid from spinach, combine mushrooms and serve.
