Frequently Asked Questions

Why is sauteed spinach so good?

The leafy green packs nutrients, but eating it cooked allows you to absorb more calcium and iron. The reason is that spinach contains oxalic acid, which blocks the absorption of iron and calcium, but high temperatures break it down.

Can I boil spinach and eat?

To cook fresh spinach in boiling water, place 1 pound washed spinach, covered, in a small amount of boiling salted water. If you’re wondering how long to boil spinach, it should only take a few minutes. Once the steam starts to foam, begin your timer. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until tender.

Is Spinach and Mushroom Stir-fry suitable for people with dietary restrictions or allergies?

Spinach and Mushroom Stir-fry can work for different diets, like vegetarian or vegan, by skipping animal products. Moreover, to make it gluten-free, use gluten-free soy sauce and check seasoning. If someone has allergies, be careful with nuts, soy, and other allergens. Plus, keep the dish dairy-free by avoiding cheese and butter.

How do I store leftovers of Spinach and Mushroom Stir-fry?

To store leftover Spinach and Mushroom Stir-fry, let it cool, put it in a sealed container, and keep it in the fridge within two hours. Use or reheat the leftovers within 3-4 days, making sure to heat it until it’s really hot. If it looks or smells strange, it’s best to throw it out.
