Most people know that eating spinach is good for you, but you should know that most nutrients in this leafy green are fat-soluble, meaning you should eat it alongside healthy fats. We usually try to grow full-sized spinach for bunching versus the baby spinach that is becoming popular. Large spinach can stand up to cooking, and also tastes delicious raw, so you get your money’s worth with versatility.

How to use it:

  • Quickly sauted or steamed, then served with vinegar as a side dish; or as creamed spinach

  • Shredded or chopped, then tossed with lettuce and other greens for a salad

  • Braised, with other greens or alongside meats

  • On hot or cold sandwiches

  • Cooked into egg dishes, like scrambled eggs, quiches, omelettes, and frittatas

  • Cooked into traditional Indian dishes like saag paneer, saag aloo, or saag dahl

  • Blended into green smoothies
