Creative ways to use spinach
Bursting with vitamins and minerals, spinach is a great addition to any diet. Check out these ideas:
- breakfast: spinach and eggs make a good team. Add fresh chopped spinach during the final minutes of cooking an omelet or scrambled eggs.
-crunchy snack: like kale, spinach can be baked into...chips. Toss one brunch of spinach with a tablespoon of olive oil and salt to taste. Bake at 350 F for about 10 minutes, until edges are brown and crispy.
-beverage blend: pop a handful of fresh spinach leaves or a cup of frozen spinach in the blender the next time you make a smoothie. The spinach will turn your drink green, but it won't affect the flavor.
- south of the border: create a delicious burrito filling by heating a combination of black beans, frozen spinach and shredded cheese.
I take about 4 or 5 eggs (to make 4 or 5 egg muffins) or egg whites, chop up spinach real small, add mozzarella cheese, chop up low sodium turkey bacon, add seasonings like garlic powder, italian seasoning or seasoning of your choice, mix it all together and pour the mixture in a muffin pan then sprinkle more mozzarella cheese on top. Then I put in the oven and bake for 20 minutes, they come out looking like muffins. They are super delicious and healthy
