Spinach is a nutritionally impressive leafy green with a variety of uses. I like to add it to sandwiches, chop it and dice it into a stir fry for the last few seconds of cooking (so it's still fresh), compliment a salad with other lettuces and greens. If you'd like to be a bit more adventurous, here are some ideas from our favourite recipe sites:
