Today is National Spinach Day. You may know that spinach is one of my favorites – probably always in my top five foods list. I always have at least one large box (usually two) of baby spinach in the fridge at any given time. Right now? Two.

I’ll take any chance to share some of my favorite ways to enjoy spinach. While most of these recipes incorporate spinach, a couple just like to sit atop a spinach salad, like my award winning pepper jacks. Yep, they’re cute, but you must try the carrot ginger quinoa filling – yum!

My spicy green Thai curry is a popular green recipe- I receive emails about this recipe a lot, and it was featured in a newspaper back east. Again, this is one that I add spinach to after the recipe, something to serve atop or alongside. Delicious.

Vibrant, bright and green:

asparagus pepper bisque

 

A party favorite:

spinach blini with pimiento spread

 

Our newest favorite is stuffed with spinach:

lemon piccata enchilada

 

Almost every smoothie I make includes spinach – it is a great energy source to start my day, and it blends with almost any flavor. Some of my favorite flavors?

chocolate cherry mint smoothie – or “The Hulk”

 

This smoothie is easy to make while traveling:

pumpkin smoothie

 

Happy National Spinach Day!
