Yuck to Yum 10 Delicious Recipes with Spinach

So, I guess spinach isn’t really the yuckiest vegetable out there (unlike brussels sprouts and broccoli), but it’s still a vegetable, and therefore hated by a lot of kids and even adults. Spinach is a lot easier to sneak into food, or to transform into something delicious though.

If you’re trying to add some more super healthy spinach to your diet, in a non-disgusting way, I suggest you take a look at our 10 Delicious Recipes with Spinach…

1. Quick Italian Eggs with Spinach

Spinach for breakfast? I’ll never say no to that. Spinach has become a breakfast staple for me in the last few years and I’ve never looked back. What I like about this recipe is that the spinach isn’t overpowering. You won’t be chewing on a mouthful of leaves. It blends well with the other flavors to form a delicious spinach breakfast.

2. Spinach Basil Pesto

Fish is one of my favorite things to eat with spinach. This prosciutto-wrapped cod on a bed of lemon caper spinach hits all the right notes.

4. Warm Spinach Salad with Figs and Butternut

Hmmm, even though spinach has a really meaty and slightly bitter flavor, it works incredibly well with sweeter ingredients like figs and butternut. If this warm spinach salad can’t convert you, I don’t know what will!

5. Cauliflower Creamed Spinach

I absolutely adore creamed spinach. However, I’ve been trying to avoid dairy for a while, so this is the perfect alternative if you’re going dairy-free like me.

6. Strawberry Cucumber Spinach Salad with Apple Cider Vinaigrette

Remember what I said about spinach working well with sweet ingredients? This is another perfect example. Spinach makes the perfect base for a sweeter, fruitier salad.
