10 Easy spinach recipes

It’s spring in Australia and time to cook with spinach. Rich in iron, nutrients and antioxidants, it is obvious that spinach is healthy for you and there are many ways to prepare it. Cooked or used raw in salads, spinach is one of the most versatile vegetables to bring to the table. Buy fresh spinach to use in salads or for cooked recipes. Frozen spinach makes a great alternative for cooking – it is already clean and ready to be cooked. It can also be kept in the freezer and whipped out for a last-minute lunch or dinner. Cook spinach in risotto, pasta dishes, savoury pies, side dishes or use it to fill meat or poultry. Italian Spoon has recipes using spinach that are quick to prepare, tasty and suitable for children.
