Toast pinenuts in a pan over medium high heat.  Be careful not to overcook.  About 2-4 minutes

In a frying pan sauteed onion until golden (5-8 min). Add garlic and saute for another minute.  Remove from heat and set aside

Wash spinach and put in a sauce pan with only water that’s still on it.  Cover and cook until spinach is wilted (1-2 min).  Drain and press spinach with a fork to get out all of the water.

Combine onions, raisins, spinach, to a frying pan over medium heat.  Stir until heated through Season adn serve hot or at room temp.
