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!
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! Here's the site: http://greenmonstermovement...
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).
Saag Paneer.. Merrill has an awesome recipe on Food52
