Soups and Stews

Does chicken soup taste good with spinach in it?

It sure does! Ever hear of Italian Wedding soup? I make something just like that. I make chicken soup, add a handful or two of spinach and I make tiny meatballs and after I bake them in the oven, I add them to the soup. It is wonderful! You can also use escarole insted of spinach. Hope this helps You'll never know until you try. Yes, if you like spinach. But spinach tastes bitter when over-cooked so add right before serving. A hot pot of soup will cook spinach in about 30 seconds to 2 min. I love spinach and I put it in all my soups, but I usually just add it to my bowl because most of the people I know are not all that fond of this delicious food.

Greens can add a nice texture to your soup as well as glam up the presentation. There's always the option of leaving the spinach on the side and allowing guests to add it as a garnish.. as long as the soup is served very hot (preferably in a soup tureen and then ladled into individual bowls so that guests have the opportunity to place the spinach in the bottom and pour the hot soup over top thus wilting the greens). Experiment with other greens too such as arugula which will impart a stronger flavor or turnip greens for a southern feel.

Green beans are another great addition to chicken soup if you are looking to add a nice "green veggie" to your comfort food. You can use canned or fresh. If you are using fresh green beans you will want to add them closer to the beginning of your soup so they have time to cook and soften (personally I like using fresh the best because they are inexpensive when in season and if you don't add them too early they stay nice and al dente and fresh tasting). If using canned green beans try to go for ones that say "no salt added" this way you can control how much salt goes into your soup when you season it yourself later.

Spinach is an excellent vegetable. While it doesn't directly cure or prevent anymore than any other nutritious vegetable, it is high in nutrients that can prevent certain conditions. It's high in folic acid, which prevents spinal bifidia in developing fetuses. Also, folic acid has been showed to reduce the rate of cognitive decline in elderly people. It's a very good source of iron, which prevents anemia. It's very high in antioxidants (the highest of any vegetable, I believe). And, as a part of a healthy diet with a variety of fruits,vegetables, and whole grains, it can reduce the risk of cancers, heart disease, stroke and many others.

How do you freeze fresh spinach?

In order to freeze fresh spinach, and have a good product upon thawing, it must first be cooked and cooled quickly. This process is called blanching. You bring your pot of water (or stock) to a boil, add the spinach, and JUST as it turns BRIGHT green, you can either dip it out or strain it through a colander. Upon removing it from the boiling water/stock, transfer it into a bowl or sink of ice water. This is called shocking it. The ice water prevents the spinach from carry-over cooking (continuing to cook once taken off of the heat source). Once cooled, drain the spinach again, then place in freezer-safe bags or containers, tightly sealed, and freeze. The spinach will last, frozen, for up to a year without compromising the flavor.
