For me, frozen spinach is like the little black dress that goes with everything. It makes my scrambled eggs even heartier, brings a little green to my pastas dishes and adds a veggie punch to my main dishes in no time. Unless I plan to eat it raw in a salad, I never buy the fresh stuff because, if you ask me, frozen spinach is the perfect vegetable. There, I said it. It’s always on hand, it works in nearly any dish and it doesn’t shrink into nothing like the fresh stuff does when it’s cooked. Instead of going for the brick, I can’t resist adding one of the plastic, resealable bags of chopped frozen spinach to my shopping cart whenever I make a trip to the supermarket. Thanks to frozen spinach’s versatility and convenience, it is definitely a supermarket staple you need to reconsider.
1. It can take you from morning to noon to night.
Spinach can add a dose of green to anything it touches, and it’s versatile enough for breakfast, lunch or dinner. No matter the hour, get your spinach fix with a homemade frittata, a classic eggy dish that can be devoured whenever. Though Trisha Yearwood’s Spinach Frittata (pictured above) for Food Network Magazine calls for the fresh stuff, thawed frozen spinach will do just fine.
