Spinach Recipes That Will Change Your View on the Veg Forever!

Spinach has gotten a bad rap historically, but today health-savvy people and cooks alike are discovering the many uses and earthy fresh flavour of this vitamin-packed green veggie.

Leafy Greens: Everyday Choice for the Entire Family

If you think your family will turn their nose up at this leafy green, you might be surprised. Despite its reputation for being out and out bland, spinach is the kind of ingredient you can sneak into a long list of dishes.
National Spinach Day is the perfect excuse to add a richer flavour to sauces, soups and stews while also giving your meals a major boost of iron and vitamins. In fact, you might find your family loves the taste of spinach, even when served fresh as an addition to your favourite salads!

Eating Veggies Doesn't Have to Be Hard

The thing with spinach is it can be hard to persuade your family to dip their fork into a pile of dark green mystery substance on their plate. However, spinach is perfectly disguised in many dishes without altering, and usually improving the flavour. As mentioned above, when you try adding some fresh or frozen spinach to your favourite pasta sauce, stew or soup chances are you’ll find it is tasty, colourful and a surprising hit with your family.

Flavour-Packed Ways for Getting Your Greens


It might seem spinach isn’t very versatile, but it actually can be used in multiple ways. And it’s not just for dinner. For example, spinach is delicious in scrambled eggs, frittatas and omelettes for a protein-packed, quick breakfast. Mix in some cheese and watch your family beg for more. It can also be used instead of lettuce on your sandwiches at lunch and is yummy when topped with your favourite dressing for a healthy salad. Dump a handful of fresh spinach in your smoothies as a snack, or use it in your pesto to toss on pasta. It makes a classic, thick and delightful creamy soup and is also sumptuously layered with cheese in lasagna.
