Spinach is great addition to a meal, especially a veggie roast and an excellent source of Vitamin K – needed for blood clotting. It reduces by about a quarter when cooked, so buy large quantities if using fresh. You can now get frozen spinach separated into handy little blocks – perfect for when you need to add another vegetable to your meal. The toasted pine nuts make add a lovely dimension.
