Keep in mind that spinach will cook down by an extreme amount. Try sautéed spinach with roasted garlic , pine nuts, and creme fraiche

http://food52.com/recipes... uses exactly 3 pounds of spinach, frozen.

I have a lot of spinach from my garden and when I freeze it, I briefly blanch it first and it comes out to about the same in weight frozen.

And here is another great recipe that uses fresh spinach http://food52.com/recipes...

And another favorite - I always add way more spinach than the recipe calls for

I also make green drinks using spinach and grapefruit. Mix it up in a Vita-Mix or food processor, adding water. So good!

Merrill's saag paneer is my go-to to use up alot of fresh spinach:

I also like to make Lizthechef's spinach gratin (made in individual ramekins). I have also started freezing this recipe without the panko topping. Defrost in fridge the morning you want to use it, add topping before baking. Perfect addition to a quick weeknight steak dinner!

Spinach1_copy I love this recipe for chilled sesame spinach - especially on these hot summer nights! http://www.framedcooks...

This might seem really strange, but try putting it into smoothies! Oh She Glows (a recipe blog) came up with this delicious combo of 1 banana, 1 tbsp almond butter, 1 tbsp ground flax, 1 cup milk, and a couple handfuls of spinach. You don't taste the greens at all!

Definitely agree with the idea to saute it with some garlic and pine nuts. Once you do that, throw it in a batch of pasta or toss it with scrambled eggs. Throw it in a soup that you're going to puree. Ooh, I like it mixed with mashed potatoes! Use it as a topper for a burger. Make spinach, cheese and mushroom enchiladas (or leave out the mushrooms if you don't like them).
