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