Spongy Spinach

  • 2

I bought a large bag of prewashed spinach (not baby) and find the texture unbearably spongy. Has anyone else experienced this? What can I do to make it palatable?

  1. i'm dubious of pre-washed greens, because you don't know how long it's been in the bag. i'd rinse it again and cook it, rather than try to eat it raw.

    1. Yeah, I've encountered that, and those leaves are flatter, with fewer or no veins and crinkling, plus a paler green. I don't know if it's a particular variety or what, but they cook up allright, if a little less mineral-y tasting.
