Winter is here and so is the time to indulge in winter greens. The season brings along a pool of healthy vegetables that are tasty and load you up with several essential nutrients. In fact, if you look into our vegetable basket, you will find an abundance of bathua, mustard greens, Malabar spinach, amaranth leaves, methi greens and more. But what remains the most popular among all is spinach (or palak). Spinach is one healthy vegetable enriched with protein, fibre, antioxidants, minerals and more. What we enjoy the most is the versatility. From soup to paratha and more, you can literally make anything and everything with spinach.
Here we curated a list of healthy spinach recipes that will add to your winter diet, in the most indulgent way possible. These recipes have been shared by food vlogger Parul on her YouTube channel 'Cook With Parul'. Let's take a look.
