Leafy greens are full of important nutrients like folate, iron, and vitamin K, and their consumption has been demonstrated to be beneficial to human health in a number of ways. Consumption of leafy green and cruciferous vegetables has been shown to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer.

This week’s recipe highlights the green leafy goodness of spinach in a delicious Greek pie known as spanakopita.

This week’s recipe was sent to CCSA as part of a series of emails from our resident chef, Dr. Linda Doody. She has been sharing her extensive collection of favorite recipes with friends, family, and the CCSA team as a means of maintaining connections during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Cooking is one of those things that is universal to people. And any time you can teach somebody a way to connect with all people, there’s so much joy in it. And it is always going to be exciting.
