Just ordered spinach powder and I have no idea what to do with it.
Any ideas? Can I make dips?
Thank you all so much.
Oh, thank you so very much.
I am so excited! I will have to try tomato powder too!
My Italian market sells it and tomato powder and several others. I've always wanted to buy some but haven't yet. I did some research and found some recipes to use it in so I'm ready when I do actually buy a bag. Of course you can make pasta with it but here are other uses.
Please PM me if you try any recipes you like with it.

I ordered from www.myspicesage.com
I tried to order some things I have never tried before, spinach powder, hickory smoked sea salt, cheddar cheese powder, applewood smoked sea salt, hawaiin sea salt, sesame sesoning.
I am excited to get started experimenting!
I certainly will let you know if I try any of these recipes.
My brother sent some applewood and Hickory bacon smoked sea salt and we like it. Have fun experimenting. I love trying new things! I bet you could also put a little spinach powder into fruit smoothies for green food smoothies. I make green smoothies all the time and if you put a lot of fruit you don't even know you are drinking vegetables too.
I order from Honeyvillegrain.com quite a bit and love their dried corn. We eat it like chips, straight from the can. It is so unbelievably sweet, yet crunchy but not rock hard.
Mercy sakes, I feel as if a whole new world is opening up before me!
I have got to try the dried corn, that sounds great. I have a very finnicky 6 year old, who may like that. I will also have to sneak some spinach powder into his smoothies!
Thank you so much.
I am constantly amazed at what is out there to try. I first tried the dried corn at a spice shop in Milwaukee, WI and loved it. I took a chance on this brand but the reviews were so good I wasn't too worried. It is just as good as the corn fromMilwaukee and as good as the reviews state.
Food is my playground! Lol!
I hope you like the casserole. I was at the Italian market today to buy some artichoke hearts and noticed they also have artichoke powder, roasted chestnut powder and garbanzo bean flour (but that isn't unusual) in addition to the spinach powder. I wish I had a lot of extra money. I'd love to go on a shopping spree there!
