We’re all looking for ways to make dinner time easier. Many of us are also looking to add nutrition to our often lacking diets. Today I want to share with you one of my favorite ways to make easy, healthy meals – frozen chopped spinach!
I’m going to share with you a few of my favorite frozen spinach recipes, but first I want to tell you a few nutritional facts and how I handle my spinach.
Is spinach good for you?
One cup of spinach is full of fiber, protein, potassium, and a number of vitamins and minerals. One of my favorite things about this leafy green (and why I eat it almost every day) is that it also provides plenty of iron.
This can be beneficial to vegetarians who are experiencing low iron due to not eating meat. A diet rich in iron can help prevent anemia and keep your body nourished.
How to cook frozen spinach
To cook with frozen spinach, remove it from the packaging and place it on a rimmed plate to catch any water that might come out as it thaws. Microwave the spinach on the plate for 5-6 minutes, then transfer to a clean kitchen towel.
Fold the towel in from the top and bottom, then grab it by either end and hold it over the sink. Pulling and twisting in opposite directions, wring the towel out to remove any excess water from the spinach. This will prevent your finished dish from being too watery.
