Spinach: Superfood Ingredient
Spinach makes you strong! This popular notion of Spinach is because it is naturally high in iron. Iron is good for your red blood cells and for energy. Spinach is packed full of vitamins which makes it a super-food. Spinach is high in nutrients and low in calories. At Moby Dick, we take our Spinach seriously. The main ingredient in our Veggie Plate and popular Spinach Salad we are careful to source and select only the freshest leaves which are stored in a dry and cool area in our coolers so that it is crisp and full of nutrients when we make each dish.
Spinach is believed to have originated in the Middle East and introduced to Europe in the 15th Century. It has been commonplace in the diet of Americans since the early 1800s. It can be eaten raw or cooked. We use it both ways.
Try our Moby Spinach Salad, a fresh mix of hearty spinach, crisp lettuce, tender black olives, red cabbage, and a juicy tomato topped with crushed feta cheese and served with Moby Dick’s flavorful House Lemon Vinaigrette Dressing. Or enjoy the Moby’s Veggie plate with fresh and hearty spinach, succulent red tomatoes, crisp sliced onions, mushrooms, and healthy alfalfa sprouts carefully sautéed, and seasoned, and served on a bed of warm aromatic Basmati rice.
