October is Spinach Lovers Month

Posted Date: October 27, 2011

There’s more to October than Halloween! It’s American cheese month, Apple month, Spinach Lovers month, and more!

Spinach is low in saturated fat, and very low in cholesterol. It is also a good source of niacin and zinc, and a very good source of dietary fiber, protein, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E (alpha tocopherol), Vitamin K, thiamin, riboflavin, Vitamin B6, folate, calcium, uron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper and manganese.

At Paul Martin’s American Bistro we serve organic bloomsdale spinach from Field Fresh Farms in Watsonville, CA. This is an heirloom variety, with large, Kelly green colored leaves, and has a sweet flavor and succulent texture. Bloomsdale spinach has a more substantial, winter greens taste and texture than regular spinach.

We have spinach on the menu at both our El Segundo restaurant and Roseville restaurant. Try the Spinach Dip with Grafton Farms white cheddar cheese and sundried tomatoes. Paired with an enticing glass of Kelly Fleming Sauvignon Blanc or the Parr Chardonnay, and for a red wine the Eric James Pinot Noir or the Meyer Family Syrah

Our Warm Bacon and Spinach Salad is made with the more tender baby spinach, dressed with warm bacon dressing, feta cheese and toasted California pistachios. This comes in two sizes; salad portion and entree portion. Try the Poet’s Leap Riesling for a white, and the Santa Barbara Pinot Noir for a red, both will pair nicely with the salad.

Stop by today and get your serving of delicious spinach!
