Spinach Stems Fry

Spinach Stems Fry

Spinach a Yes to health!

All spinach varieties become our best friend once we know that they are always on top of the nutrition list. I love spinach as much as potato fries. Spinach are also versatile and when they are added to a simple sandwich or to any deep fry recipe, they add the health value and become more interesting to eat with satisfaction that ‘I am eating healthy’. There are chances that many of us leave the stems and eat only the leaves. Here I am going to share a recipe which includes only stems of the spinach. You can choose any spinach variety with nice good stem for this recipe. Here is the spinach stems fry recipe.
