Ingredients

  • 1 baguette
  • 7 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 8 cups spinach trimmed
  • 8 cups arugula trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese crumbled
  • 1/4 cup toasted pine nut

Method

Cut baguette diagonally into twenty-four 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices. Toast on rimmed baking sheet in 350°F (180°C) oven, turning once, until golden, 10 minutes. Using 1 of the garlic cloves, rub over 1 side of each toast. Mince remaining garlic.

In small bowl, mash minced garlic with salt to form paste. In large skillet or wok, heat oil over medium heat; stir-fry garlic paste until aromatic, about 2 minutes.

Add spinach; cook, stirring occasionally, until wilted and bright green, about 4 minutes. Pour off any liquid. Sprinkle with vinegar and pepper; toss to combine. Spoon onto prepared toasts; sprinkle with feta and pine nuts.
