Last week I ordered English spinach as a part of my weekly online shop. I recognise that there is nothing at all interesting about that. However, I thought I’d ordered 400g. Instead I ended up with 4 kilograms. Let me give you the tip, despite spinach reducing tenfold when cooked, that’s a lot of spinach. It was delivered in a large kitchen garbage bag. I’m sure it went a long way to confirming my husband’s suspicion that, whilst I might be a good cook, I am quite daft. Secretly I fear he might be right ~ that or I need new glasses.
I’ve tried to be fairly creative in attempting to use it up. Spinach soup, spinach dip, pasta with the green stuff, chicken fillets stuffed with spinach and pine nuts, sautéed spinach and mushrooms, kale and spinach salad, etc, etc, etc, ad nauseum. Heck, I even added it to the dogs’ meals each night. Finally, last night I made spanakopita which got rid of the last of it. Hallelujah!
A few of you have asked for my recipe for the frittata I cooked over the weekend, featuring, you guessed it spinach. It was totally delicious and simple, so here it is… but please promise me that when you buy the spinach for this recipe, you won’t order it online lest you end up with 4kgs of the stuff…
Notice how many times I’ve used the word spinach in this post? Hopefully it gives you an indication of how much of the stuff I’ve had to contend with….
Tell me, what’s your favourite spinach recipe and should I risk ordering some next week?
Until next time….
