Spinach is good for you
Spinach is a highly nutritious vegetable, well just look at its colour.. It contains plenty of iron, but also has a very distinctive flavour when cooked, you just know it is good for you (eh Popeye?).
It is in many ways the perfect leaf green – mild flavored and soft in texture, and very easy to cook. You can add fresh spinach to most dishes, and it is now available all year round. Spinach, as are other green leafy vegetables,is very rich in iron.
For centuries spinach has been used in sweet and savory tarts, curries, and soups. Also great as a pizza topping, or in authentic pasta sauces, pesto, and of course in omelets. Also good to add to a salad (I like baby spinach for this purpose).
As it is so versatile, consider growing spinach in your garden this year – you will be well rewarded. I will be writing more on growing spinach so watch this site.
