 --------  ------------  -------------------------------- 
  450      g             fresh spinach 
   33      ml            olive oil 
                         garlic 
      1/4  cup           dried tomatoes 
  
 1.  Clean spinach. Place in a covered sauce pan with water still clinging
 to the leaves. 
  
 2.  Heat some water and refresh dried tomatoes. Cut into slivers. 
  
 3.  Heat olive oil (from marinated tomatoes) in a small frying pan. Peel
 several cloves of garlic, slice them into 2 or 3 pieces and smash them with
 a heavy coffee cup or by pounding them with the flat of a wide knife.
 Coarsely chop the slightly crushed garlic. Add garlic to the hot oil and
 brown it. Remove from heat. 
  
 4.  Cook the spinach. If the spinach is fresh and young, cook it until just
 wilted. If the spinach is older, cook it a bit longer. 
  
 5.  Pour the oil and garlic over the spinach. Sprinkle the tomatoes over it
 and add a small amount of salt and pepper. Toss the spinach to mix.
