Where fresh spinach might be absent in the supermarket (if only because we stumble into the shop half an hour before closing, despite our best intentions), frozen spinach makes loading this nutritious veg into your meals about as convenient as it gets.
Whether in whole baby leaf form or ready-chopped, frozen spinach is portioned into handy nuggets, meaning you can use specific amounts without waste. Drop them into stews, soups and sauces, or thaw (the microwave can speed that process up) and use raw – just squeeze out any excess moisture with kitchen roll if needed.
Combine with other odds and ends to make a nifty pesto or mix with ricotta to top pasta. Alternatively, toss through couscous and other store cupboard finds for a healthy salad that’s perfect for lunchboxes. Or add, as is, to sandwiches or wraps.
