-pizza
-chicken parm
-salads

More ideas?

1- I just steam them, add lemon, garlic, some olive oil.

2- With lentil soup, add fresh spinach in the last 5 min. Lentil is healthful.

Saute shallot and yellow onion in a olive oil until translucent, season salt and pepper. Add chopped garlic and cook for another minute or two. Add baby spinach and cook until slightly wilted. Take the warm mixture and mix in some crumbled feta cheese. Set aside.

Take a whole boneless chicken breast (not cutlets). Trim the fat. Off the fat side of the cutlet, cut 1/8-1/4" inch slice and set aside. Using a thin knife, I use a paring knife, insert the knife into the middle of the fat end of the cutlet, lengthwise. Working the knife back and forth, cut a cavity inside the cutlet, keeping in mind to not make your initial opening bigger than the width of the knife. You are going to need to remove the knife and flip it over to make sure you cut both sides equally. Hopefully this makes sense.

You then take your spinach and feta mixture and stuff the chicken breast with it. Take the piece of chicken that you cut off, insert that into the slit and use a toothpick to hold it in place. It will act as a plug and prevent any of the stuffing from oozing out.

The end will look like this:


I usually just season the breast with salt and pepper. A little dill and fresh thyme would work as well. I take whatever stuffing I have left over, put it back on the heat and cook the spinach down a little more. Add a little Greek yogurt, and cream to thicken up a little. Once the desired consistency is attained, toss the mixture into a blender and give it a few quick hits. Pour that over the chicken breast and serve.

If you also make pizza, take the dough and roll it out flat into a rectangle. Take the same process as above but instead of feta, mix in ricotta and some shredded mozzerella. On top of the dough, put a layer of proscuitto, then on top of that a layer of the spinach mixture. Roll the dough with the mixture inside of it and make sure to seal the end. Also bake it with the sealed side down so it doesn't unroll. Brush the top of the roll with olive oil, grated parmesan and bake. Cut into 1.5-2" slices and serve with a side of marinara sauce.

Salad I usually do half a bag.
