Spinach Coming Out My Ears!
Well, not literally! This time of year, spinach is being harvested and we are blessed with as much of it as we can consume (and sometimes a little more:-). Spinach is very good for you (Extraordinarily high in vitamin C and rich in riboflavin, one cup of cooked spinach also contains a very high level of vitamin A, folate, magnesium, potassium, as well as vitamins E, B6, and thiamin), so I spend time online finding new recipes and ways to use spinach. I have made Spinach Brownies (taste better than they sound), Ultimate Spinach Dip, many different kinds of Spinach Salads, Italian Wedding Soup (a favorite), added fresh spinach to pizza, eggs, and other dishes. Do you have a favorite recipe using spinach? I would love to have your input! Just leave your idea or recipe in a comment. Thanks!
