15 Delicious things to do with spinach

The weather is getting cooler here in Australia (YAY!) and it is the perfect time to plant some spinach! While you're waiting for your seedlings to grow into something edible why not head to your local farmers market and grab a pre-grown bunch so you can try one of these delicious recipes.

Need more convincing that you need spinach in your life? Camilla Cahill (APD) from The Scoop on Nutrition says this about the folic acid that is found in my favourite green:

"Folate, or folic acid, is one of the B group vitamins which help to improve mood and cognitive function. A study involving 9670 participants from the SUN cohort found significant positive association between low folate intake and the prevalence of depression in men. But rather than rushing into supplements, the UK Mind Guide to Mood and Food recommends you go for whole foods first and see a nutrition expert for assessment. I love some wilted spinach on wholegrain toast which provides about 160ug (40% RDI) folate."
