PUT the sultanas in a bowl, cover with hot water and leave to soak while the spinach cooks.
Wash the spinach well, discarding the stalks.
Put the spinach in a saucepan without any water and cook gently for 5-10 minutes until wilted and just cooked. Drain thoroughly, squeezing out as much water as possible.
Melt the butter and oil in a large frying pan, add the peeled and chopped garlic, cook gently for a minute. Add the spinach and stir gently until evenly coated with oil and butter. Drain the sultanas and add to the pan, stir in the pine nuts, with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately. Enough for two. For a vegetarian meal, try it with pasta dressed with garlic, parmesan cheese and unsalted butter.
