1. Spinach with Eggs

This six-ingredient recipe is ideal for breakfast or brunch. It’s hearty, filling, and has a surprising amount of flavor. 

You won’t believe how well eggs and spinach go together. Their flavors complement each other perfectly. 

Mix in a few onions and season the dish with salt and pepper. It’s a nutritious breakfast you can feel good about.

2. Scrambled Eggs with Spinach

Want a spinach and egg dish that focuses more on the eggs than the spinach? No problem! This recipe takes your everyday scrambled eggs and adds a dash of spinach. 

It only slightly changes the eggs’ taste and provides a pop of color.

3. Savory Spinach Tart

This recipe is so good, it can trick kids into eating spinach. The tart looks gorgeous and very pie-like, which makes it so much fun to eat.

It’s also incredibly tasty. The warm pastry dough is rich and mouth-watering. Plus, there’s a decent amount of cheese, as well. 

4. Spinach Artichoke Dip

Spinach is super nutritious, which is why most people eat it. But my favorite spinach recipe serves a more decadent purpose. 

Yes, I’m talking about creamy, rich, indulgent spinach artichoke dip. It’s ridiculously cheesy and ooey-gooey to the max. 

I promise I won’t judge you if you decide not to share. 

5. Spinach and Feta Pie (Spanakopita)

This savory, tangy recipe will be a hit with the whole family. It has layers of flaky, crispy phyllo dough with cheese, spinach, and scallions. Every bite is earthy and herby, and the crunchiness is unmatched.

Preparing and baking it takes about an hour, but it’s well worth the time and effort. It’s guaranteed to impress your guests. 

6. Creamed Spinach 

You can make creamed spinach with fresh spinach. But did you know you can prepare it with canned spinach, too? Use this recipe, but substitute canned spinach instead of fresh spinach leaves. 

Add the spinach slowly until the dish reaches your desired consistency. Put in more spinach for a thicker dish and less for something extra creamy.

7. Spinach Rice

Spinach rice is warm, fluffy rice infused with spinach, ginger, garlic, curry powder, and more. 

It’s a flavorful, aromatic dish that makes an excellent side for anything. You can also use it as a bed for lean proteins or grilled veggies.

8. Canned Spinach with Bacon

Need a recipe to jazz up a plain old boring can of spinach? This one has you covered. It starts with “plain old boring spinach” and levels it up.

Add some bacon, garlic, onions, and a few other ingredients. By the time you’re done, most people won’t know you started with something canned. 

9. Spinach Tortillas

Add more flavor and nutrients to your wraps by using spinach tortillas. You can find them on the bread aisle in most grocery stores. 

But why head to the store when you can whip them up at home? You need salt, water, spinach, and all-purpose flour.

The recipe is quick and easy to follow, and the resulting tortillas are out of this world. Use them to make wraps, pinwheels, or even yummy quesadillas. 

10. Popeyes Spinach Hamburger Burritos

These healthy, hearty burritos are 110% Popeye-approved. They’re beefy, cheesy, and have just the right amount of South of the Border flavor. 

You can whip up the filling with only eight ingredients. Then, simply wrap it in a tortilla and call it a day! To keep it low-carb, you can serve this as a burrito bowl instead.

11. Spinach Casserole

This delectable casserole is so cheesy and full of bacon. You’ll almost forget it contains spinach, even though it’s very visible in the dish.

This casserole is so full of flavor, even the kids will love it. Just tell them the green stuff is a really unique type of cheese if you need to. 

12. Creamy Spinach and Cheese Green Chile Enchiladas 

These vegetarian enchiladas are one of my all-time favorites.

Before I tried these, I always thought enchiladas were strictly cheese or full of meat. I didn’t realize you could get veggie-packed enchiladas, too. 

This recipe is absolutely to die for! The only thing I changed about it is the cheese. I use queso fresco and a Mexican cheese blend instead.

13. Creamy Honey Spinach & Carrot Bisque 

This sweet and smoky bisque is vegetarian comfort food at its finest. It’s thick and creamy with the rich flavors of honey, carrots, spinach, onions, and garlic. 

It’s vegetable-forward and tastes like something your grandma would have made. For a complete meal, serve it with thick, dark bread or a leafy green side salad

14. Palak Tofu

This recipe is my go-to when I need a quick and easy vegan dish. It takes 15 minutes to whip up and uses only a handful of ingredients.

It has a distinctly Indian/Asian flavor and is absolutely delightful. You may even convince your non-vegan friends to try it. 

15. Cheesy Spinach Quiche

I love this recipe, and once you try it, you will, too. I know making homemade quiche sounds scary, but this recipe is a breeze.

Start with store-bought pie crust, for one thing. That helps simplify the whole process. Then, it’s just a matter of mixing ingredients and baking. 

Trust me, there’s nothing to it, and the results are outstanding.

16. Creamy Spinach Sauce

This creamy, cheesy, garlicky sauce is perfect for your pasta or pizza. I love to pour it over fettuccine noodles and add some diced chicken. 

But honestly, it’s an incredibly versatile sauce. You could use it for just about anything. 

17. Spinach & Cheese Omelette 

Want a spinach and egg dish that’s guaranteed to please? Try this spinach and cheese omelet. It’s a nutritious way to start the day but doesn’t make spinach the star of the show.

If you don’t tell your kiddos the spinach is inside, they’ll probably never know. The eggs, cheese, and onions are far more robust flavor-wise. 

18. Quick Garlic Spinach

Quick garlic spinach is a flavorful dish you can whip up in about 10-12 minutes. All you need is a can of spinach, some garlic, and a small onion. 

Combine the ingredients and cook them in some butter or vegetable oil. Add a dash of red pepper flakes for extra heat. 

19. Fried Spinach

Yes, believe it or not, you can fry spinach. It’s not difficult, though it takes about half an hour.

Fry it with an egg, milk, and some bacon bits for the best flavor. 

20. Baked Spinach Gratin

This buttery, earthy dish is unique, tasty, and easy to make. It requires fewer than 10 ingredients and takes about 35 minutes from start to finish. 

It features a crunchy, cheesy topping and is impossible to resist. My grandmother typically saved this recipe for Sunday dinners after church. But you can whip it up anytime.

21. Air Fryer Canned Spinach

Need a canned spinach side dish that’s ready in about 10 minutes? Pop that stuff in the air fryer and cook it that way!

All it needs is a little butter, garlic, and onion powder for extra flavor. 

22. Spinach & Tomatoes

Don’t you just love recipes that take a can of something and completely transform it? I do! And that’s exactly what this recipe does. 

At its core, it’s a simple canned spinach recipe. However, by the time you finish adding all the extras, it’s something totally new. 

It has more in common with a fresh garden salad than a simple can of spinach. Try it once, and you’ll never return to plain old canned spinach again. 

23. Chickpea, Spinach, and Coconut Curry

This sweet and spicy curry recipe is an easy introduction to Indian food. It tastes insanely good over a bed of rice or with some warm naan bread. 

Just remember to go easy on the fresh ginger and red chile, especially if you’re sensitive to heat.
