Put it on pizza: Who said pizza can’t be nutritious? With spinach on top, it can be. What’s more, is that when cooked on a layer of hot cheese and tomato, the combo is mouth-watering. Spinach is also filling, which is another great benefit.
Use it for salad: You don’t necessarily need lettuce for your salad. Instead, combine spinach leaves with veggies, chopped nuts and little chunks of cheese. For some lean protein, you can also include cottage cheese, Greek yogurt or tofu. Then, pour on some olive oil, vinegar and lemon juice. Looking for more ideas? Try our Citrus Spinach and Rice Salad or Spinach and Salmon Salad.
Stir it into stews, stir-fries, and soups: Stirring spinach into one of these comforting dishes adds thickness as well as nutrients to the mix. Fresh spinach leaves make a fine accompaniment to Thai chicken with noodles, vegetable soup or white bean stew. Or, try them in our Spinach and Bacon Casserole.
Begin by cutting a wedge of your preferred Parmesan cheese. Make numerous cubes of cheese. No specific knife expertise is required!
Toss the cubes into the blender and pulse until the cheese is broken down into your desired size. That’s it. No special equipment or hand grating that wedge of Parmesan.
If you have any leftover grated Parmesan you can store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. Try some out in our Garlic Parmesan Rice Bowl or our Rice Stuffed Eggplant Parmesan.
