Spinach. It's one of the most healthy foods you can find--filled with loads of vitamins (especially A & C) and extremely high in antioxidants. It's also considered to be high in folic acit, iron and calcium among many other nutrients.
But to some, spinach is just an ugly blob of goo sitting on their plate. It doesn't have to be that way.
Mark Bittman of the New York Times has come up with tasty and easy ways of putting more of this great veggie on your dinner plate.
While there are many ways of cooking spinach, Bittman uses wilting, steaming, braising and super-slow cooking to create 12 distinct, but simple dishes. Read about them here.
Fresh spinach should be appearing soon in your local farmers' market (if it hasn't already), so pick up a bunch or two and try these recipes--or your own favorite!
