Chinese Spinach in Superior Stock

Spinach is one of the most eaten superfood in my family. These dark leafy greens are rich in antioxidants and high in iron, calcium, folic acid, and vitamins A and C, which are all great for growing bones and brains. I've memorized all these facts by heart because I've done alot of researches when I was a new mommy last time. Back then, I was always trying to find out what are the superfoods to feed my baby.

Spinach as one of the superfoods.

Now, my hubby love to eat spinach more than my daughter. One of his favorite spinach dish is this spinach in superior stock. This is a quick way of serving your family with a superlicious and fancy 2-in-1 dish. 2-in-1 because it is a vege dish in a soup.
