Cooking with Spinach

This truly versatile green is a perfect base for any meal–raw or cooked. While baby spinach is more expensive, the stems don't have to be removed, which will save you time when preparing.

First up is our Fennel and Spinach Salad with Shrimp and Balsamic Vinaigrette. Quick, fresh, light—the perfect trifecta for a weeknight meal. Thin slices of fennel with fresh spinach leaves are nice bites that contrast with bacon and bacon-sautéed shrimp. It’s fast and looks fancy.

Creamed spinach is a quintessential, but fat-packed steak house side. Try this lightened classic with cremini mushrooms and nutmeg. Since the spinach is lightly wilted and tossed with the sauce, this recipe would showcase colorful varieties such as Bordeaux or Cardinal with deep red stems.

Linguine with Spinach-Herb Pesto

Here is a lovely twist on beloved pesto for spring. Baby spinach takes the place of most of the basil to give the sauce an earthy flavor. The thick, emerald sauce beautifully coats the flat noodles and serves up big flavor in every forkful.
