Bought some fresh spinach and will saute the leaves. What can I do with the stalks though? Is there nutrition there? I was thinking of maybe a spinach stalk cole slaw?
Yep, use it to juice, or put in a smoothie. If you have a powerful blender, it will just blend right in, and you'll get tons of benefits from it. I juice all of the leftover bits of the produce from the day before (broccoli stalks, apple cores, carrot ends, kale/spinach/chard stems, etc.), and it makes a nutritious and surprisingly tasty way to start my morning.
Use everything! Cut off dirty parts. Julienne.
In a pan, add thinly sliced shallots and garlic, and carrot shavings. Butter. Touch of salt. Sweat until it smells delicious. Throw in spinach stalks. Saute until glistening. Add a touch of cream to make it...creamy.
