If you’re looking for a healthy, easy, and tasty veggie side dish – look no further! This Stir Fry Spinach and Mushrooms is the perfect side – and here’s how I cook it.

About the Ingredients

Here’s some extra notes about the main ingredients you need.

Cooking oil

You can technically use any of your favorite cooking oil or fat of choice. Olive oil, coconut oil, vegetable oil are all options.

I prefer to use sesame oil for this dish, and if you would like to use sesame oil, just make sure you are using pure sesame oil and not toasted sesame oil. The reason for this is because toasted sesame oil does have a lower smoke point than pure sesame oil.

Mushrooms

Mushrooms contain B vitamins as well as an antioxidant called selenium, which helps to support the immune system and prevent damage to cells and tissues. Now, specific mushrooms have different health benefits, but that’s pretty much true for all of them.

In this recipe you can customize the mushrooms too, if you prefer a different type of mushrooms. For example, you can try it with cremini mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms, beech mushrooms or more!

Spinach

There’ a reason Popeye ate so much spinach… it’s super healthy for you! It’s low in calories, while being an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A, magnesium, folate, manganese, iron, calcium, vitamin C, vitamin B2, potassium, and vitamin B6.

One tip I have is if you want to save time, you can purchase pre-washed spinach in the salad section of the grocery store. I do this very often so I don’t have to worry about washing it.

Garlic

I prefer to smash my garlic cloves to release the delicious flavors. Then cook them whole. This is partly because I actually will literally eat the whole garlic cloves when it’s cooked thoroughly.

Garlic is not only insanely flavorful to me, but it’s also super nutritious and has many health benefits so it makes sense to eat it!

However, if you prefer your garlic minced or chopped, feel free to do this! Adding the garlic is super flavorful so I wouldn’t skip this ingredient.
