3 quick dinner ideas with spinach


Transform a bag of spinach with our three quick dinner ideas. Each recipe uses spinach plus just three other ingredients to make a simple midweek meal.


Incorporating spinach into your diet is a great way of topping up your iron levels, especially if you're following a vegetarian or vegan diet. Eat it raw in a salad, cooked in a curry or as a filling for pies and pasta. You could even whizz it up in a smoothie. It's such a versatile, leafy green veg and, if you don't have time to go shopping during a busy week, you can buy it frozen as well as fresh.


If you're heating spinach, remember that the leaves wilt easily, so it only takes a few minutes to cook. Some recipes will require you to squeeze out the excess moisture, but this is generally a quick-to-prepare ingredient.
