There are many recipes which offer variations of leafy greens. Many call for frozen spinach, but I "tweak" as you know and substitute what I feel works best. I have several recipes I would be willing to share. However, you would need to do your own "tweaking" to find what is best for you.
Soups, creative salads, and main courses can all camoflage spinach and other leafy greens.
Here is one example- Spinach-Turkey Roll-Ups
2 teaspoons honey mustard
Dash ground nutmeg
8 thin slices oven-roasted turkey breast (3 ouces)
1 cup fresh baby spinach leaves
1/2 red or green pepper, cut into strips
4 sticks mozzaraella string cheese cut lengthwise into quarters.
1. In a small bowl, stir together honey mustard and nutmeg. Carefully spread mustard mixture evenly onto turkey slices.
2. Divide spinach evenly and place on turkey slices, allowing leaves to extend beyond the turkey. Top with the pepper strips and cheese.
3. Starting at an edge of a turkey slice with cheese roll up each turkey slice. If desired, cut each roll-up in half. Makes 8 servings.
