This Greek-inspired side dish is simple to make yet wows with flavor. Leftovers make a fabulous omelet filling.

3/4 cup(s) onion(s), chopped
2 tsp minced garlic
18 oz spinach, baby leaves
1/4 tsp table salt
1 cup(s) grape tomatoes, cut in half
1/2 cup(s) crumbled feta cheese

Heat oil in a large deep pot over medium-high heat. Add onions; cook, stirring often, until light golden and tender, about 7 to 8 minutes.

Add garlic; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Add spinach and salt; cook, tossing, until spinach wilts, about 2 to 4 minutes. Add tomatoes; cook, stirring, until tomatoes soften, about 1 to 2 minutes.

Remove from heat and drain off any extra liquid; stir in feta. Yields about 3/4 cup per serving.
