Spinach season is coming to a close so I’m getting my hands on as much fresh spinach as possible! I’m excited to have found plastic-free spinach from Potager Montréalais through Lufa Farms wrapped in nothing but a rubber band 🙂
In order to enjoy spinach year-round, I took a few minutes to chop it in my food processor and freeze it into little cubes‚ just like the ones I used to buy in the freezer section at the grocery store. But rather than conventionally grown spinach shipped from France, this spinach is pesticide-free and grown only 30km from my house! And did I mention each bunch was on sale for only $1?! A zero waste win-win-win 😀
How to freeze spinach
1) Remove spinach leaves from stems and wash thoroughly. Use a colander to drain extra water.
2) Place spinach leaves in food processor or blender. Add a bit of water to keep things moving.
3) Press chopped spinach into ice cube trays and place in freezer.
4) Once frozen, pop out spinach cubes and store in a covered glass container in the freezer. Use your frozen spinach in smoothies, soups, dips, sauces and more!
