I made some potato/leek soup over the weekend with smoked sausage and caraway seeds in it. Tossed in a couple handfulls of baby spinach (de-veined), and some Tiger Sauce. Quite tasty, if I do say so!

great salads from it. Try spinach, red peppers, feta cheese and walnuts. If it is a bit past the salad prime, take six eggs (beaten), 1 cup milk or cream, handfulls of spinach, chopped if it is not baby spinach, a bunch of greated cheese, basil or other herbs (or try nutmeg) and bake for 1 hour or less at 350. Great quiche-like dish. Or we had at Sunnycamp some great spinach salads---prettiest might have been with pears, fancy cheese and dried cranberries and walnuts. mg

LOL at BeeDub!!! Yeah man......You really do have it right! I eat some of them for reasons known only to god.....The worst of the greens in a can I think is maybe kale or mustard.....really hideous even after I go through the squeeze out and re-season thing.

Thankfully we get reasonably fresh stuff in the supermarkets nowadays. It's great to have so many of the greens and leafy things year round. Like swiss chard....another favorite. The only thing I never see is one of my true favorites and that's dandelion greens....for pretty obvious reasons. It was always a highlight of springtime to have a big batch of dandelion greens............Heaven is a place where dandelions grow year round.   And as that the old ethnic joke goes (applicable in my case)....How do you get rid of all the Italians in America? Plant dandelions down the center of the freeway.

Canned spinach is an abomination! It's like somebody tasted fresh spinach in one of the many sumptuous forms in which it may be presented, and said, "Mmmm! This stuff is really good! Wouldn't it be a great practical joke to figure out a way to make it taste like shit?" So, they cooked it until all the taste was gone and the texture was roughly the same as last week's snot. Then they put it in a metal can so it could absorb the wonderful taste of the metal. I'd rather just throw the spinach out and eat the can.

I'm with Mario and I love wilted spinach as well as wilted lettuces. I make a killer hot bacon dressing and we have it on the average of once a week in the summer and still pretty often all year long anymore.

I think spinach though, I think Manicotti!!!! And for those of you reducing fats.......Try the fat free ricotta. I use it in cooking and it's worked out well. Spinach, parmesan, romano, garlic, oregano and the fat free ricotta makes a great manicotti and it's really low in fat and not too high in calories.

I like sauteed lettuces as a side to steaks and chops too. A combination of them is always better such as escarole, red romaine, and spinach, in olive oil with a touch of red wine vinegar, romano, and garlic.....LOVE IT!

The tinned stuff? Well, if you squeeze all the juice out of it, add a bit of olive oil, vinegar, garlic, and parmesan.......it eats.

I grew up with frozen spinach and always ate it with either vinegar or lemon juice, even when I was little. I like fresh spinach, too, in salads or steamed. I like the wilted spinach and bacon as long as it's not really oily.

I don't think I've ever eaten canned spinach.

I will not ask why it is there. Instead, I'll just make something up.

Let's see....

There is a two foot high (I assume that it's two feet high) Popeye on your desk because you also have a stuffed Olive Oyl and like to put them in compromising positions.

There is a two foot high Popeye there because it reminds you of your long-lost love, Maggie Thatcher.

I can do even better. Let me think....

I actually like canned (tinned?) spinach - with vinegar - better than I like fresh spinach. I suspect that when I'm preparing fresh, I'm not ruthless enough in the destemming process. Excpet for in quiches, spinaka and casseroles. But for eating it 'straight', give me canned.

Sautee (i.e., fry) onions with streaky bacon, crisping the bacon. Add vinegar and sugar to make a liquid, toss in spinach and cook it until the spinach wilts. This is also great with dandelion greens or, really, most any other sort of greens (except ramps).

MMario, I use a lot of soy cheese. They make some halfway decent flavors now, but I don't find some of them very often. I would like some soy feta and ricotta. As it is, I use mashed up soft tofu for the ricotta and mix in soy mozarella and add an extra egg to my lasagna mix. It's doable (but sometimes it's just worth eating it with the dairy and taking the decongestant for several days afterward!)

I agree with Kendall, that canned spinach with vinegar is an old childhood favorite. I may pick some up this afternoon!

Ah, but soft poached eggs on a bed of lightly steamed fresh spinach with dollops of a sauce made of mayonnaise with a touch of Pommery mustard mixed in -- divine.

Add lots of buttered whole wheat toast to sop everything up with.

Eggs Florentine for people who need names for things.

If you like spinach pop along to the italian stall on Beverley Market( the one with the longest queue in the market) and buy some of their excellant Spinach and ricotta rolls also recomended is everything else on the stall, but before you all descend on the stall let me get there first!!

I grew up eating the canned spinach, and sometimes it's interesting in a retro sort of way, but I do like it fresh steamed or cut up in salads. I live in the south but didn't grow up here, so I'm not versed in using a lot of the local greens. I have always grown Swiss chard, however, and I find it more versatile than spinach and use it a lot. When it gets bigger it works in dishes the way cabbage will (it holds up in soups, doesn't melt away like spinach would). Chopped up and submerged in the egg/milk mix it's great in quiche. Cut and steamed it's good wilted with a little vinegar, like spinach.

I've used it in Middle Eastern recipes with lamb. And spinach pie--it's so good (and I might even cheat and eat some even though I try to avoid dairy products these days).
