This month, Ricki and I decided to go with another versatile vegetable that can be used in a host of different ways. Are you ready to exercise your kitchen creativity and cook up some Sweet or Savory dishes that contain. . .
Young spinach growing in my very own garden!
Popeye's favorite green leafy vegetable is our star for the month. Not only is spinach nutritious, it is also a lovely shade of green! Why do I like that? It ties in nicely with my focus this month on Lyme disease (it's Lyme Awareness month) and my snazzy "lyme" green logo. I also like spinach because spinach is not an artichoke. After last week's Blogger Secret Ingredient event and four posts featuring artichokes, I'm a bit burned out on the subject!
Ricki, my SOS challenge collaborator, is hosting this month's challenge. So, bop on over to her site to read up on all the great nutrition spinach has to offer and her great spinach recipe suggestions for inspiration! Last month's inaugural challenge with beets had a whopping 24 entries, and we'd love to see just as many, if not more, this time with spinach! There are lots of great obvious savory choices, but how will you make spinach sweet? Come on. You have until May 20 to bring it.
To enter the challenge, simply create and post a recipe using spinach before the deadline of midnight CST, May 20, 2010 and send it to me at soskitchenchallengeATgmailDOTcom. (For full details on what kinds of ingredients to use and how to enter the challenge, see this page ). I'll post the roundup (as will Ricki, on her blog ) a week after that so you can take your time browsing through the amazing collection of recipes before the next challenge!
