Ginger Garlic Spinach (Chinese Style)

There are a few ways to cook spinach. In this recipe, I boil the spinach over the stove in quick time. Then I prepare a simple ginger garlic sauce to pour over the boiled spinach. Lots of garlic and ginger are added to enhance the flavour of the sauce. Sharp spinach is used in this simple recipe.
