Spinach ideas (that you've tried yourself, not just pinned on pinterest or seen online)

I'm bored, looking for ideas, gone over what I've pinned so far, but don't want to waste what I have on something that doesn't work.

  • I put baby spinach into smoothies. Any kind works - you can't taste it and it adds nutrients.

    My favorite is 1/3 cup Greek yogurt, 1/3 cup almonds, 1 pack oatmeal (I use maple or cinnamon roll), 2 bananas (I freeze them), a handful of baby spinach, and where it says 2 cups ice I use 1 cup milk because the frozen bananas make the texture thicker than room temp ones. I think that's it, lol.

  • I make a mean Spinach creamy soup. Just get an onions and saute it in olive oil, then add the amount depends on how much soup you need. Satue some more then add water, again depending on how much soup you want, I also add three cubes of vegetable broth salt and pepper to taste. Leave it on for about 20 minutes simmering, then put it through the hand blender or regular one, once it is blended, add whipped cream cheese to thicken it. If you desire to thicken even more, put it back to boiling point and add a table spoon or two of corn starch dissolved in water and add to the soup while it is boiling, it will make  it thicker, either way the soup is awesome!

  • I scrambled my eggs with some spinach, garlic, and cream cheese this morning. Not exactly that creative but it tasted good.

  • I normally just cut up some strawberries,goat cheese(feta is good too),slivered almonds,craisins and make a salad out of it. But I am kinda weird I dislike cooked spinach something about the texture but I love it raw.

  • Thinking I may have to try the egg thing - does it go in long enough to wilt, or does it still stay crunchy?
