Six Quick and Easy ways to prepare Spinach

Chopped Spinach
Chopped:  Add a handful of coarsely chopped spinach to sandwiches, eggs, pasta, grain dishes or your favorite soup

Steamed Spinach
Steamed:  Heat spinach in a steamer basket just until wilted, then plunge into ice water.  Press out excess moisture and chop.  Mix spinach with Greek yogurt, garlic, green onions and dill to make a quick dip for crudites and whole grain crackers.

Wilted Spinach
Wilted:  Top spinach greens with hot grilled vegetables and a little vinaigrette.  Toss to wilt spinach.

Creamed Spinach
Creamed:  Saute some onion or leeks until softened, add spinach, and cover for a few minutes; stir in a dash of cream and season with salt, pepper and freshly grated nutmeg.

Blended Spinach
Blended:  Throw a handful of spinach into your morning smoothie for an extra helping of phytonutrients and fiber.

Sauteed Spinach
Sauteed:  Saute chopped shallots or garlic in extra virgin olive oil, add 4 to 5 ounces of spinach and continue sauteing for a few minutes until cooked down, then finish with salt, freshly ground black pepper, and a splash of apple cider vinegar or lemon juice.
