Tip: Use Your Potato Ricer to Remove Moisture from Spinach

If a recipe calls for frozen spinach with the water squeezed out, I have a great and easy way to do this. No more do you need to waste valuable paper towels and make a mess. I use my potato ricer. Just put the thawed spinach in the potato ricer and clamp down the top portion and squeeze. With one or two squeezes, the spinach is completely dry and ready for your recipe.

Recipe: Sautéed Greens for Two

This is a 'put your hand on your tummy and rub to show it's yummy' recipe. ;-)

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 lb mustard greens and/or spinach, stems removed, rinsed and drained
  • 1/8 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 1/2 tsp. garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper
  • Red wine vinegar

Directions:

Heat a large pot over high heat until hot. Add the olive oil. Add the garlic and cook for a few seconds until it is golden. Add half of the greens and toss well in the garlic oil with tongs.

Add the remaining greens and toss until the greens wilt evenly. When wilted, season with salt and pepper to taste. Continue cooking over high heat, tossing often, until the excess liquid evaporates.

Transfer greens to a bowl and allow to them cool to room temperature and season to taste with vinegar. Serve at room temperature. The greens are also tasty served cold and will keep well in the refrigerator for a couple of days.

Recipe: Spinach Pasta Noodles

Spinach Pasta

Spinach pasta is a very tasty type of homemade pasta and a great way to sneak some vegetables in the kids. It's great with spaghetti sauce, cream based sauces like Alfredo sauce, pesto sauces, or our favorite, homemade shrimp scampi!

Ingredients:

  • 1 (10 oz) pkg. frozen chopped spinach, drained
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 cups sifted all purpose flour.

Steps:

  1. Place thawed spinach in a towel and wring out all water until spinach feels very dry. Finely chop spinach using a food processor or blender (after the first time we made this, we started hand chopping the spinach to avoid extra dishes).
  2. Spinach Pasta
  3. Place spinach, water, eggs, and four in a mixer bowl. To avoid a flour explosion, we start with half the four and add the rest gradually. The recipe says to mix 30 seconds with a flat beater, but after the first time we made the recipe, we started mixing it by hand (just as easy, and again.. dishes!)
  4. Spinach Pasta
  5. If using a mixer, change to dough hook and knead 2 minutes. Remove from bowl and hand knead for 1-2 minutes.
  6. Spinach Pasta
  7. Divide dough into 8 pieces before processing with pasta sheet roller (we use the pasta maker attachment for our Kitchen Aid Mixer, but another type of pasta maker would work.). Start on lowest setting and working toward narrowest setting.
  8. SpinachPasta5Spinach Pasta
  9. Once pasta reaches desired thickness (for the Kitchen Aid attachment this is setting 4). Run sheets through wide pasta cutter attachment - or you can cut by hand.
  10. Spinach Pasta
  11. You can freeze or dry pasta for later, or you can immediately place cut pasta in a pot of 6 quarts boiling water, 2 tsp. salt, and 1 Tbsp. oil (optional). Add pasta gradually and cook until "al dente" or slightly firm (about 6 minutes). Pasta floats to the top of the water while cooking, so stir occasionally to keep it cooking evenly . Drain in a colander.

  13. Serve with desired sauce and toppings. Here we are enjoying a dinner of Shrimp Scampi over Spinach Pasta.

I found that frozen shinach is very stringy. The veins and stems are left in during cooking process. Much better if you use fresh spinach and remove the stems and large veins before cooking it. Takes more time but worth it in the end.
