Servings 2 people


  • 2 slices thick-cut bacon minced (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ cup minced onion (red or white)
  • 2 green garlic scapes minced, or 2 regular cloves garlic
  • ¼ cup walnuts
  • 1 bunch spinach coarsely chopped and washed
  • ¼ cup cubed feta or fresh mozzarella cheese


  • In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, brown the bacon (if using), set it aside, and drain off the fat. Heat the olive oil on medium heat, and sauté the onion, garlic scapes, and walnuts until they soften.
  • Stir the spinach into the nut-and-onion mixture and cook down, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the bacon and cheese; cover until warmed, about 3 minutes.
