I started something new now! Something to help out people that struggle with food prep for the week or that just don’t know what to do with left over veggies inside the fridge or even struggle to cook more seasonal.
Every week now I choose one vegetable and I cook 3 completely different meals with it.
This first week I Started with my childhood favorite: Spinach. This dark green leaf has a crazy versatile character. It’ can be Salad, cream, purée, tartes, fillings…
I chose to use it chopped and sautéed with a bit of onion, garlic and amazing chickpeas and Stuffing a Sweet Potato. It’s a quick, nutritious and delicious way to make lunch, dinner or why not both?
This is also a great recipe to meal prep since you can freeze everything without loosing quality or taste.
I hope you enjoy this, the 2 next spinach recipes that come.
