Spinach ranks with one of the healthiest foods you can eat. But there’s no reason you can’t make it exciting, exotic and delicious! This classic Greek recipe will remind you of the joys of eating healthy.


  • 1 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1⁄2 small white onion, sliced into thin rings
2 lb. fresh baby spinach, washed and stemmed
  • 1⁄2 tsp. grated lemon peel
  • 1⁄4 tsp. sea salt and pepper
  • 1⁄4 cup crumbled feta
1⁄4 cup black olives, diced


Heat a large pan with a lid over medium high heat (if pan cannot hold all the spinach, cut the recipe in half ). Add coconut oil, diced black olives, and sliced red onion. Sauté until onion starts to wilt.

Add spinach and quickly sauté for 2-3 minutes. Add lemon peel, salt and pepper. Cook a few seconds more to release flavors.

Add crumbled feta and stir to incorporate. Transfer to serving dish and serve immediately.
