Spinach is a beloved tender green that packs a nutrient-rich punch with its immune-boosting minerals, vitamins, and phytonutrients. This versatile, leafy vegetable has endless culinary uses, which is convenient considering its Herculean health benefits!
This sweet, succulent green is an excellent addition to salads, veggie sautés, soups, smoothies, pizzas, pastas, casseroles and homemade pesto. Spinach shines brightest when paired with ingredients like balsamic vinegar, goat cheese, eggs, fresh fruit, toasted nuts, salty cheeses, citrus, and members of the allium family like onions, garlic, and scallions.
Store spinach greens in a plastic bag or container lined with a paper towel, to help soak up excess moisture.
