Transforming Leftover Spinach into a Delectable Sauce: The Concerned Cook Teaches You How to Reduce Food Waste

Posted at 6:05 PM, Apr 24, 2024

Ever found yourself staring at a bag of spinach in your fridge, realizing it's not as fresh as you'd like for your salad? Concerned Cook, Aymara Lucero, has a solution: turn it into a delicious sauce! Aymara joined Inside South Florida to share a simple yet ingenious way to repurpose spinach, not only saving money but also reducing food waste at home.

Here's how it's done:

  1. Prepare the Spinach: Begin by chopping the spinach into small pieces. This step helps the spinach cook evenly and infuse its flavor into the sauce.
  2. Cooking the Sauce: Heat a pan with olive oil and add the chopped spinach. Then, flavor it with garlic (or your preferred seasoning) for added taste. Once the spinach cooks down, add cream and Parmesan cheese to create a creamy and savory sauce.
  3. Versatile Serving Options: The beauty of this sauce lies in its versatility. It pairs perfectly with whole wheat pasta, tofu, chicken, fish, or any other protein of your choice. The creaminess of the sauce blends well with various vegetables, allowing for endless customization.
  4. Taste Test: Once the sauce is mixed with pasta or your preferred base, it's time for the most exciting part: the taste test! Enjoy the fresh flavors and creamy texture of the spinach sauce as it elevates your meal to new heights.
