If you are anything like me, the thought of a challenge gets your adrenaline pumping and you can’t wait to get started. My journey with food has always been an interesting one so why stop now?!
I am challenged by most vegetables so the task is often how to play with vegetables so that they don’t really taste like vegetables (sounds crazy I know). So I know I was having a particularly crazy day when I decided to take on the spinach challenge.
To be fair, I wasn’t thinking spinach, to begin with, you see I had bought some broken drum wheat cannelloni shells. I’ve never had cannelloni before but as they were a bargain I couldn’t resist them (is it just me that the thought of a bargain often finds you buying things you have never used before). I knew at some point they would come in handy.
And this was the day
I was hungry and hadn’t sorted out my meal plan so as I scoured my cupboards I noticed the unopened box of canneloni and decided to set myself a task of finding a delicious way to use them.
All the recipes I found had spinach as their base (I used the one I found at www.planticize.com as my base). Fortunately, I had spinach in the freezer (a staple for my green smoothies) so I was half way there. I just needed to take a deep breath – in my world it’s a far cry from drinking spinach to eating it – and give it a go and that’s exactly what I did!
