In the kitchen
Tail spinach. wash them and wring them out.
Heat a jumper. Add to it the semi-salted butter previously cut into large cubes. Prick a clove of garlic with a fork and roll it in the butter to prevent it from burning. When the butter is well browned, remove the clove of garlic and reserve it.
Place all the spinach in the sauté pan. Salt them lightly. Mix them well. They will quickly reduce in quantity. When they are perfectly cooked, add a good turn of ground pepper.
Place your starsspinach in a serving dish. Top them with the garlic clove. Pour all of the cooking juices over the spinach.
