LOOKING for: easy frozen spinach: how to improve?
OK, I know this will sound pathetic to all you cooks out there...but I'm secure in my anonymity here.
In my ongoing search to add more dark green vegetables to my diet (in the dead of winter), how can I improve frozen spinach? As a kid I loved it right out of the box: Mom would put the whole block covered with water in a pan until it was no longer frozen, break it up, boil it briefly, press it in a strainer to remove the water, then plunk it in a bowl and add a pat of butter. We all loved it. Popeye was our hero.
I tried doing it is a similar way, steaming it in the microwave, but it was kind of bitter. I'm not looking for something fancy or for guests (my family won't touch it, fresh or frozen): just something I can eat by myself as a side dish. I bought it loose in a bag, frozen.
