5 Wholesome Spinach Recipes & How To Prepare Spinach Correct


Prepare spinach the perfect way and 5 wholesome spinach recipes

Making spinach really crunchy is not that easy. That’s why I used it raw for a long time as a salad or in a smoothie. But now I manage quite well to prepare the wholesome spinach recipes as a warm side dish:

Variant 1: Cooking spinach – Pay attention to the following

Wash and dry spinach – Insert the fresh spinach in a sieve and wash it with lukewarm water (not too hot, otherwise it will be too soft before cooking). Then dry it with a dish towel or a salad spinner.

Heat the spinach – Put the leaf spinach in a wide pan or pot over medium heat. The large area of ​​the pan helps to make more contact with the leaves since raw spinach usually has a lot of volume.

Add more spinach – Over time, the volume will decrease very significantly. If there is any excess water, pour it off in between. You can then add more fresh spinach until the entire amount is lightly cooked.

The whole thing should not take longer than 5 minutes, otherwise, the leaves will become too wilted.
By the way, oil is not necessary, but you can add it afterward as a flavor carrier.

Variant 2: Frying the spinach

Wash and dry the spinach well (as described above).
Chop some ginger and garlic and fry in olive oil in a pan. Add spinach, with the lid on, reduce heat to 50%. Let it simmer for 3-5 minutes.

Pour in a cup of vegetable broth and let it simmer open until most of the broth has evaporated and the spinach has sunk.
