10 Spinach Recipes To Try

spinach recipe green kitchen stories

I’ve got 10 spinach recipes for you to try today.  I’m in a bit of a spinach kick at the moment, and as spinach is pretty much in season all year round in the UK it’s a great sustainable ingredient to have in your kitchen, whether it’s fresh or frozen.

10 Spinach Recipes To Try

One of my absolute favourite things to make with spaghetti is Anna Jones’ one pot spaghetti.  The recipe says to use kale but I make it with spinach (and often throw in a big handful of basil) and it is delicious.  If I had to eat this spaghetti every day for a year I’d be quite happy!  Omit the hard cheese and it’s vegan too.

This Spanish chickpea and spinach stew from Lazy Cat Kitchen is vegan and gluten-free friendly, and is definitely on my list of things to cook.

spinach soup recipe

This spinach and white bean soup sounds like a deliciously comforting bowl of soup.  Vegan friendly too, it’s ready in only 30 minutes.

Green Kitchen Stories never let me down.  I’ve got two of their cookbooks and everything I’ve made from the books have been 100% delicious.  These spinach and quinoa patties will be my next Green Kitchen Stories make, I reckon.

I’m not 100% confident in the kitchen and the idea of pastry does intimidate me a little, but gosh, this spinach and artichoke galette looks pretty darned good.  We’ve got artichokes growing in our allotment (if the pesky slugs don’t get there first) so this might be something to make when it comes to artichoke harvest time.

spinach salad idea

Whenever the weather warms up I always crave salad.  This spinach, beetroot and quinoa salad looks divine.

spinach smoothie recipe

I haven’t really jumped on the whole smoothie/juicing bandwagon that’s been going on for a good few years now, and I’m not too sure how I feel about spinach served in a drink.  I would be willing to give this pear, ginger and spinach smoothie a go though.

spinach pizza recipe

If pizza is more your thing then swap the Parmesan cheese for a vegetarian hard cheese and get making this three cheese spinach pizza!

vegetarian spinach quesadillas

Or maybe these carmelised onion, spinach and avocado quesadillas are more your thing?

baked egg spinach recipes

Finally, if you’re in the mood to brunch then try these baked eggs with mushrooms, potatoes, spinach and Gruyere cheese.  It’s made using only one pan which is always the best kind of recipe – less washing up to do!

10 Vegetarian Breakfast Ideas That Will Have You Drooling

Are you a vegetarian in a toast or cereal rut?  Never fear, I’ve put together 10 delicious vegetarian breakfast ideas to shake up your routine and repertoire!

I know I’m certainly in need of extending my vegetarian breakfast repertoire.  In our house it’s mostly cereal, porridge, toast, bagels or fruit and yoghurt.  Not exactly exciting stuff – BUT I have big plans to change this, at least at the weekends anyway!  Work days are hard when you’re rushing to get yourself and a little one fed, dressed and out the door before 7:30am so I’ll give myself a pass on those days for now!

10 Vegetarian Breakfast Ideas

1.  This kale feta egg toast recipe from Well Plated looks really tasty, and a good seasonal winter veggie breakfast, as kale is in season and in it’s prime in winter.

4.  These spinach potato pancakes from Veggie Staples would make a great savoury breakfast idea, and are also vegan and gluten free.

5.  I have made this baked carrot cake oatmeal from Green Kitchen Stories and it was Yum (with a capital Y!), but also a good twist on conventional porridge.  I found the recipe makes a lot of oatmeal (A LOT!) so you might want to halve the ingredients for a more manageable sized dish!

6.  I haven’t tried these pumpkin anytime squares from Oh She Glows, but I would like to give them a go!  They sound like they would be ideal to bake ahead in a batch, and keep in a tin to grab for a quick breakfast on the go.

9.  These healthy banana pancakes from yours truly are not only tasty AND healthy vegetarian breakfast, but a great way of using up any bananas that might be going off in your fruit bowl.

10.  Finally, in the last of my vegetarian breakfast ideas, I’m really keen to try out these muffin tin omelettes, from Hearth & Homefront.  They look like they would freeze well to eat later, which would be really handy on those mornings when we’re rushing out the house!
