thumbs_downSprouts.

I've never been a great lover of anything cabbagy. I've recently found though, if you put greens in a smoothie with blueberries, you only taste the blueberries. Now that's a winner for me. (And maybe a helpful tip for mum's trying to get their children to eat their greens.)  smile

Never assume anything - except an occasional air of intelligence.

I found a way to get my sister to eat these – you make a sauce by frying down an onion and some chopped bacon (you can get fake bacon pieces at some health shops), then add a good dollop of butter and pour over the sprouts…the salty creamy combo marries brilliantly with the sprouts (and if you roast the sprouts they are also sweeter).

I forgot to ask - when did you last eat spinach that wasn't tiny and wasn't in a bag?  Last year I had a delivery from Riverford Organics which included real grown up spinach, huge leaves that tasted so good that I ate most of them raw, within an hour of delivery...embarassed

Asian markets always stock the 'normal' spinach.  Sometimes you are lucky and they have washed them too... I recently discovered the roots are edible as well and a nice crunchy addition to a salad.

 

My favourite spinach side is simply wilted spinach that has been seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic and chilli flakes...can eat plates full of the stuff.
