~ Alternating with Kale flakes ~Review by DavidA good amount of greens are always added to my daily soups and stews, the main ones being either spinach or kale. Check out the diet of our closest genetic relatives like chimps. Over half of their diets consist of greens and they're healthy and strong. Spinach has lots of calcium and iron, is loaded with vitamins A, a number of B, also C, E and K as well as loaded with a spectrum of minerals such as phosphorus, zinc, manganese, and a lot more at lesser amounts. Even a full complete protein believe it or not, though the amount is small. And they call them dumb apes. One and a half ounces of this product reconstitutes to over a pound of hydrated spinach, so it's a good dollar value overall. Love my greens, helping to make balanced, nutritious meals-in-one.
beautiful productReview by NursesnappyAs usual this product is a home run. Tasty, delicious and a healthy alternative to processed junk. This is our second order from NBT and we have not been disappointed in any of the items we've ordered. We held off on ordering a large amount of fruit items due to the naturally high cost but every item we've tried has been well worth the expense. This spinach is a wonderful addition to lasagna, spaghetti sauces, dips and soups. A great way to bolster the nutrition of almost any saucy dish type thing. NBT is becoming the name to beat in our household. I placed my order and within hours the order was out NBT's door and on it's way. Two days later I was enjoying my newly purchased items. There is no higher consideration a company can give it's customers than to get the properly packaged order out the door fast! I always look forward to browsing the site and trying new items. NBT is one of the most economical sites I've found for these types of products. Great packing, fast shipping, and courteous service.
Love it!Review by OHMfromVirginiaHere's the deal! I am a VERY picky eater....I can count the number of veggies I will eat on one hand. Having said this, I am trying to eat healthier. I am big on Protein Shakes and a friend recommended I try adding spinach to them. I don't eat spinach but did try fresh and I found it didn't impact the taste of my chocolate shakes. But I just don't keep spinach in the house....so I bought these flakes....they work great! I hydrate the spinach in my Ninja with a little coconut water and chocolate soy milk. I add chocolate protein powder, a bit extra cocoa, cinnamon, North Bay's banana and blueberry powders, raw oatmeal, and lots of ice cubes....DELICIOUS. I don't have children, but can't believe this recipe wouldn't fool the most finicky young eaters!
Not as good as the freeze dried spinachReview by ElaineIf you're using spinach in a dish with lots of other veggies, then this is a good, budget-friendly choice; the spinach won't overwhelm any of the other flavors. However, if you want to use this in a dish where spinach is a featured component, then go with the freeze dried spinach, instead. The flavor of the air dried spinach is less pronounced than the freeze dried version. It's great for sneaking extra vitamins and minerals into a pasta sauce, for instance.
soup goodnessReview by lisa1st the smell of this spinach is very fresh. Extremely green in color - it darkened up like it does when you cook it. So I made a crockpot of soup - 4 cups low sodium veggie broth, 4 cups water, 4 cups NBT freeze dried cauliflower, 2 cups NBT airdried spinach, 1 heaping T of NBT air dried shallots, 3 heaping T of NBT air dried leeks 2 cans no sodium diced tomato and 2 cans no sodium mixed veggies plus 1/2 T of Himalyain (sp?) salt, 2 T of no salt seasoning, 1 T of granulated garlic and 2 heaping T of Nutritional yeast flakes - crock pot over night = 4 quarts of soup greatness - Thank you NBT for great products!
VersatileReview by KathleenGood for dips, and pasta -- spinach re-hydrates quickly and is tasty.
Fantastic productReview by chemist momThis tastes just like frozen spinach, without the "tea" flavor in some other dried spinach flakes I have gotten in the past. I ordered 10 pounds, as a trial, and it filled 3 of the 6-gallon buckets with the recloseable mylar liners. I now wish I had gotten the 20 pound bag for just a few dollars more. You can't go wrong with this dried spinach, and it is so good for you, too.
Great to have on handReview by AndreaI love adding dried veggies to everything from casseroles, spaghetti sauces and tuna casserole.
Really really great!Review by TracyYou can't go wrong with this dried spinach. I will never buy frozen again - this is fresh looking, great color, fabulous fresh taste, already chopped without having tons of stems, AND, zero storage expense. Just seal and sit on the shelf. Sprinkle in soups, add to pilafs, even omelettes with ease!
Easy to Prepare
- For soups and pasta dishes, use dry spinach flakes and add to the recipe 1-1/2 to 2 parts water for each part of dry spinach.
- To cook alone, use 1 part dry spinach flakes and 7 parts water.
- Simmer for 5-10 minutes.
- More water may be needed.
Yield — 1 oz equals about 1-1/4 cups dry. Generally, air dried vegetables double in volume when hydrated.
Rehydration Ratio — 1 lb of air dried spinach flakes, once rehydrated, equals approximately 8 lbs of fresh prepared chopped spinach.
Storage — Best if used within 18 months. Store tightly sealed in a dry location away from sunlight.
