Fried Spinach

I ate the craziest thing last night at dinner...


Fried spinach.

It is dry, paper thin and when you place it in your mouth, it melts on your tongue! It was delicious!

I asked the chef if frying it negates any and all benefit of eating spinach. He said when you fry food, things can only go 2 places... into the air or back into the oil... there is nothing in the air and the oil remains clear and clean... so, yes, I guess you get 100% of the nutritional value from spinach even if it is fried....truly a super food. grin.

Hey Lynn! I heard someone asking Clyde how he fried the spinach... he said he just puts it in his fryer for a few seconds, takes it out, sprinkles it lightly with sea salt and dries it on paper towels... ? It was GOOD~! :)

Cheryl - nope. Mashed potatoes and a filet with mushrooms on top went with ... drool.
