Spinach is one of those leafy green vegetables that kids love to hate but somewhere on our journey to adulthood, we realize it is surprisingly delicious.
In grocery stores, it’s not hard to find several different ways you can buy spinach, from fresh to frozen, in small, premade salad packages to massive bags or tubs that misleadingly look like they will feed an army of ravenous vegans.
A few years ago, an interesting myth began circulating about the safety of spinach – more specifically, reheated cooked spinach.
Which, of course, leads us to the question: Can you reheat spinach? Yes, you can reheat spinach. Spinach is best when warmed slowly on low heat. No matter which appliance you use to reheat your spinach, make sure it is warmed gradually and not blasted with heat in a high-power microwave or oven broiler.
If you do happen to have leftover spinach, you can freeze or refrigerate them to warm up for another meal. This may, however, lead to controversial dinner-time conversations, so before you do, it’s a good idea to know the facts behind the warnings about reheating spinach.
