Spinach is not only a versatile ingredient, it’s also a very nutrient-rich one. Raw spinach has a mild, slightly sweet taste that can be refreshing in salad, pesto, smoothies and dips. Its flavor becomes more robust and bitter when cooked, so it’s best used in recipes with strong flavours such as lasagne, bolognese, frittata or mexican dishes such as enchiladas or chilli. Spinach is second on the Dirty Dozen list, so chooose organically grown whenever possible.
