That makes this dish in to a wonderful appetizer or just a snack for every one on some late night when you are watching a favorite show. Spinach is a terrific green vegetable, and all green veggies are full of goodness. Spinach is loaded in vitamins and minerals, and especially antioxidants, which attack free radicals in our body and protect our bodies at the cellular level. Spinach is loaded with vitamin A, K, and loaded with manganese. It also has a broad range of other nutritional components. This is a vegetable to eat regularly, whether a frozen variety, as this recipe calls for, or fresh in some great tossed salad.
Artichokes have plenty of goodness too, and when you eat them, you are eating the un-flowered flower bud of the growing plant. Artichokes are low in calories, but high in dietary fiber and anti-oxidants. Artichokes are also a great source of vitamin K. Between the artichokes and the spinach, you will be set in this regard.
