The following is a guest blog post from Bren Haas – blogger at BG Garden.
My teenagers just love these spinach wraps I make from scratch in under 15 minutes. Soft and packed with vitamins with spinach you can grow in your home garden and harvest in 2-3 weeks. This is a great way to sneak in those extra vitamins teenagers need.
Growing Tip: It is super important to me to fertilize my vegetables the all natural way. When growing spinach I’ve had healthy results using fish emulsion every two weeks. Be sure to harvest the spinach young when the leaves are only 2-3 inches tall.
5 cups of chopped baby spinach
2 ½ cups of all purpose flour
1 teaspoon of salt
1 clove of fresh minced garlic
¼ cup of olive oil
In large pan cook spinach in water stirring occasionally until the spinach is wilted and soft.
In a large pan or skillet over medium to medium-low heat, cook spinach in water about 5 minutes.
In a mixing bowl, combine flour, salt, garlic and oil.
Add the spinach mixture with remaining water from pan kneed in to flour mixture adding additional flour as needed.
Divide dough into 10 balls.
Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to pre-heated skillet.
Roll out each ball into a 8” circle carefully adding to the hot skillet.
Cook each side 5-10 minutes or until lightly toasted.
Serve with your favorite fajita mix like grilled steak, red peppers, onion with crumbled Cotija cheese on top.
