Canned spinach can be used as you would frozen. Just make sure spinach is well drained and most of the liquid is removed. Otherwise your lasagna will be very watery. (03/16/2008)

  • Drain the water and mix it with some canned soup. You'll be increasing the nutrients multifold!

  • Use drained canned spinach instead of marinara sauce on pasta. A little olive oil, some oregano and basil, and Parmesan cheese, toss and eat -- yum!

  • Use drained canned spinach on pizza crust in lieu of tomato sauce. Sprinkle with Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses and you've got a great new pizza taste!

  • Mix with scrambled eggs and cheese.

  • Mix with rice and cheese. (03/16/2008)

Recipes Using Canned Spinach

Here's a great recipe I learned at a Pampered Chef party. Use as much or as little as you want with this recipe. You chop into cubes, lunch meat of ham and turkey. I usually use 2 parts turkey to 1 part ham. Mix with 1/2 can of spinach, 1/2 bag of shredded fiesta blend cheese and enough mayo to hold together, usually 2 large tablespoons. Mix well. Take 2 cans of Pillsbury crescent rolls and lay each piece in a circle on a pizza stone, with tips on outside. Take your meat ingredients and put a spoonful in each large side or roll, bring the tail up to the mound and tuck under, repeat. Now it looks like a wreath when finished. Cook until crescent rolls are browned about 25 minutes at the temperature the crescent rolls state. It has a great taste and there are never any leftovers. My daughter loves this and even asks for more spinach in it. (03/23/2008)

I was involved with a feeding ministry and they had many, many donations of canned spinach to try to use up. Here are some of the things they did and some ideas I found on the internet:

  • use canned spinach in quiche
  • blend in a blender and add to soups and stews
  • blend in a blender and use in chocolate brownies. It is said that if you let the brownies cool completely the taste of the spinach is gone.
  • add spinach puree to meatballs and meatloaf
