This is a basic one pan dish using some greens to add color and get your kids used to seeing green on their plate. The spinach in this dish is mainly for fiber which most of us are lacking these days. Use fresh baby spinach like you find in the store for salads. This is why I like buying baby spinach is because you can eat it raw or cook it up.
1 lb lean ground beef
2 cups baby spinach leaves
1 small onion, diced
1/4 C Splenda granulated sugar or sugar alternative
1/2 Cup Low sodium soy sauce
1 tsp minced ginger
1 T minced garlic
Ground black pepper to taste
Green onions, chopped, for garnish
In a large pan with high sides, brown ground beef with soy sauce, sugar, ginger, garlic and pepper on medium high heat.
When most of the ground beef it cooked off, drain excess oil. Return to heat and add onions and spinach and cook until onions are slightly transparent and the spinach is wilted with a nice deep green.
Garnish with green onions and serve with brown rice.
