Spinach, Spinach & Spinach – Spinach has a high nutritional value and is extremely rich in antioxidants, especially when fresh, steamed, or quickly boiled. It is a rich source of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, magnesium, manganese, folate, betaine, iron, vitamin B2, calcium, potassium, vitamin B6, folic acid, copper, protein, phosphorus, zinc, niacin, selenium and omega-3 fatty acids. The list just goes on, the question is what do you do with this green leafy thing?
Most people just eat it raw in their salad, or mix it with their salad, with walnuts, apples and blue cheese. Others just put it into things like eggs scramble, lasagna, or quiche. But what if you want to keep as much as possible from the nutrients and just keep spinach as a side dish, what do you do then? I have a few things I do with the spinach, here is a simple spinach side, it takes only 5 minutes or less. But I am looking for other ideas. What do you do with your spinach?
