Spinach Crap

Spinach Crap

I’m always on the look out for new sides to try out. Especially dishes that can be made in bulk and taste good! This recipe comes from my cousin and is apparently a family favorite that I never even knew about (maybe its because my side of the family would never have eaten spinach).  Well, on keto spinach is pretty much the best vegetable ever so I thought I’d give it a go.
Frozen SpinachStart with some frozen spinach.  I buy spinach in bulk from BJs and it comes in huge, 64 oz bags but you can just as easily buy 3 10 Oz bags for this recipe.

Thawed SpinachThaw the spinach in the microwave.  Most modern microwaves have a frozen veggies setting so you don’t even have to worry about the time.  In case you were wondering, the microwave has a humidity sensor in it and when the humidity hits a certain level it assumes the vegetables are cooked.  Not perfect but it works!

Draining Excess MoistureAfter you’ve microwaved the spinach, make sure to drain any excess liquid out. My small bowls happen to fit perfectly in my spinach bowl so I just push down and squeeze as much liquid out as I can.
