Spicy Spinach with Sunflower Seeds

Spicy Spinach with Sunflower Seeds

Serves 8

30 minutes or fewer

Steamed spinach gets a little kick and crunch from spiced, toasted sunflower seeds.
  • ½ cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 2 Tbs. plus 2 tsp. olive oil, divided
  • 1 Tbs. plus 2 tsp. barbecue or jerk seasoning, divided
  • 2 lb. spinach leaves
  • 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Stir together sunflower seeds, 2 tsp. oil, and 2 tsp. seasoning in small bowl. Spread on small baking sheet, and bake 5 to 7 minutes, or until light brown. Set aside.

2. Heat remaining 2 Tbs. oil in large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add remaining 1 Tbs. seasoning, and cook 30 seconds. Add spinach leaves in 3 or 4 batches, turning with tongs to wilt evenly. Let cook 1 minute, then remove pan from heat, stir in vinegar, and season with salt and pepper, if desired. Sprinkle with sunflower seeds just before serving.
