Leslie’s Peas & Baby Spinach

This is one of my stand-by, I need a green side dish ‘stat’ (super fast) recipes and it typically takes me less than 3 minutes to pull together.

This will serve 4 people and maybe a little extra if your children are not interested in salad.  If they enjoy peas but don’t like spinach, it’s easy to provide a serving of ‘just peas’ and save the spinach parts for the grown up eaters.



  1. Pour 1/4 cup of olive oil in the pan to warm it up over medium-high heat.
  2. Add and then sauté the peas, stirring frequently, for 2 or 3 minutes, until they no longer look frozen and are bright green and warm but still ‘firm’.
  3. Throw in 8 ounces (about a handful) of the spinach leaves, toss gently with a large spoon or tongs, and add a little extra olive oil.
  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve and enjoy!
