Bonduelle Spinach Leaf Portions (Frozen)
Low in calories, high in nutrients
A delicate vegetable with a great flavor, frozen spinach from Bonduelle is rich in nutrients and ready to use.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
With no artificial color and no preservatives added, Bonduelle frozen spinach is of high quality. It’s beautifully and attractively green. It’s a subtle mix of sweet and tangy, with a mild herb-like flavor.
Like green peas, spinach is great to puree and give to babies as introduction to vegetables. It’s low in calories, and high in nutritional value. Rich in iron, it’s also a great source of calcium and Vitamin A, as well as fiber and Vitamin C.
Frozen spinach is great for healthy smoothies, and to put in dip (as in the famous spinach and artichoke dip), and lasagnas. You can even spread them onto your toast (once thawed) and top them with a poached egg.
Why not up your healthy dinner game with a creamed spinach-stuffed salmon dish?
- • In a bowl, mix together cream cheese, mozzarella, thawed frozen spinach, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes.
- • Season some salmon fillets with salt and pepper. Then with a paring knife, carefully cut a slit onto the sides (lengthwise) of each salmon, creating a pocket.
- • Stuff the salmon pockets with your salmon with the cream cheese mixture.
- • On a large skillet over medium heat, sear the salmon skin-side down for about 6 minutes, before flipping. Once flipped, drizzle with melted butter and lemon juice, and cook for another 6 minutes.
- • Serve with a side salad, or mashed potatoes.
###GIVE PEAS A CHANCE It was in 1926 that Pierre and Benoit Bonduelle turned an old barn into a cannery. It housed four pea shellers, and produced about 600 boxes of peas a day. They had a good momentum going. That is, until 1939, when the building was requisitioned by the French army, and damaged from the war.
It wasn’t until 1945 that they could resume operations. And in 1947, Bonduelle as a brand was born. With business booming and advertising flying off, Bonduelle became a name in the canned pea business.
It was in 1968 that they ventured into frozen food, something that was already popular in the United States, but was relatively unknown in France. It was a success.
Bonduelle is now a giant in the frozen food industry, with quality never straying and still held at the forefront of their production.
Immediately store frozen vegetables in your freezer. The temperature must read -18C or 0F to keep the quality. Unopened, it will last 24 months.
Once opened, take what you need, and return the rest into the freezer immediately, sealing the bag tight and well, and pressing out the air. Ideally (especially when bag is not resealable), transfer your frozen vegetables into freezer-safe resealable bags, and press out the air before re-storing. It will last 8-10 months.
