Crispy Spinach Chips
"I don’t like spinach, and I’m glad I don’t, because if I liked it I’d eat it, and I just hate it." — Clarence Darrow Ha! Circa "20 some years" ago, if you would ask me to eat spinach, that quote right there would’ve been exactly what I would’ve said. I can still recall my parents waiting persistently at the dinner table 'til near bedtime waiting for me to swallow my last bite of cooked spinach from my plate. No joke. And to be honest, I’m still unsure of eating a boiled pile of the stuff... However, I do love spinach in many other forms, especially raw in a salad. Fresh... I’ll eat it every single day! In chip form... just as often. Crispy, crunchy chips are my kryptonite. My kind of "chocolate cake" if you will. Now here’s my new little tip when roasting... instead of using parchment paper, place a cooling rack on your baking sheet and place the spinach leaves on top... this will create a wonderfully new crispy texture to the chips. I also found it makes them turn less brown and it actually gives them a little bit of a "crinkled chip" look and texture. To me, this tasted better than placing them on the pan. When doing that, I found them to be too flat and paper like, rather than like a crispy, crunchy, glorious chip. Hope you all enjoy!

A lot of people are put off spinach as kids, partly because it is a bit strong for some children’s palates, partly because it is often murdered in the kitchen, and partly because the adults go on about how healthy it is. If this applies to you, think again. Popeye was right—spinach is good for you, being rich in iron, Vitamin A, and antioxidants—but it is also one of the tastiest vegetables around. It goes particularly well with cheese, as in this scrumptious tart.The Meat Free Monday Cookbook edited by Annie Rigg © 2016 Kyle Books, and the photographs © Tara Fisher.

The 'smart alecs' might say this is simple - "just buy it in Italy" - and it is true that Italian fresh spinach holds its form and doesnt cook into a mushy mess like some lesser breeds, but these are some tricks to get the best out of whatever you can get your hands on. If you wash the leaves, dry them in a salad spinner so you don't have extra moisture For the perfect balance of flavor, add a dash of fresh nutmug, a squeeze of lemon, and a pinch of sea salt Perfect spinach is spinach that's been cooked just as it wilts, so take precaution because it turns in a matter of seconds Pour out any excess water from cooking, as it ruins the flavor To read more tips on cooking and to learn more about Nudo products, visit their website.

Strawberry-Spinach Salad with Champagne Dressing
I love this salad, as it is highly satisfying, which many salads fail to be. The combination of canola oil and almonds provide just enough of the "right" fat to leave you satisfied and full without offering too many calories from fat. The homemade dressing is also easy to put together and delicious witthout the added salt, sugar, or fat that would come from a bottled dressing. Lastly, this salad gets high marks from me for the nutrient-rich spinach and strawberries. This easy-to-prepare, power-packed combination provides the rich color, fiber, vitamins, and antioxidants we need to round out a nutritious meal. See all spinach recipes.
