Spinach and Feta Saute

Recipes • Side Dishes •

I love Greek food and I’m especially a big fan of feta cheese. I swear, I put Athenos reduced-fat feta on everything. Salads, pizza, sammiches… whatever. I came across this recipe on WW for something so simple: spinach. I like spinach, but I don’t normally eat it by itself. I’ll have some in something else or maybe a spinach salad, but not ever really just as a side-dish n’ such. This is only 2 points and it’s easy, which really, for me, what it’s all about. Oh, also? I squeezed a little fresh lemon juice in there, too. It made it taste like the Spanicopita, just without the flakey phillo pastry.

If you try it, let me know what you think!


2 tsp olive oil

1 medium onion, finely chopped

20 oz chopped frozen spinach, thawed and well-drained

1/4 tsp table salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

3 oz reduced-fat feta cheese, crumbled


1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring frequently, until just golden, about 3 minutes.

2. Add spinach, salt and pepper, stirring to combine. Cook until heated through, about 3 minutes; stir in feta. Yields about 1/2 cup per serving.
