  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • 1 red bell pepper

  • cut into 1-inch 25mm pieces

  • 1 cl garlic — minced

  • 1 lb fresh spinach — rinse, chop

  • 1 tbsp prepared mustard

  • 1 tsp lemon juice

  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

  1. Spray large skillet with nonstick cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Add red bell pepper and garlic; cook and stir 3 minutes.

  2. Add spinach; cook and stir 3 minutes or just until spinach begins to wilt.

  3. Stir in mustard, lemon juice and red pepper flakes. Serve immediately.

  4. Cooks Tip: To obtain the maximum nutritional value from spinach, cook it for the shortest possible time. The vitamins in spinach and other greens are soluble in water and fats and are therefore lost during long cooking.

It would probably be ok without. Sounds yummy, though, and I just bought some fresh spinach too.

I have an allergy to mustard, so what else can I use in place of this or can I make it without adding the dry mustard…Debe
