Reheating Cooked Spinach for Work Lunch?

Felliott | Dec 2, 201608:56 AM     21

I have tried to look this up, but the Internet is not providing much in the way of answers.

On Sundays I usually prepare lunches for my husband and I for the week. I always include vegetables of some kind. My husband told me that he'd like to take cooked spinach next week. He's OK with canned, but I hate canned vegetables and I'm loathe to send someone I love with something I can't stand (although I'll do it if I can't find another solution).

I like fresh cooked spinach or frozen spinach, but I'm wondering if it would be appealing to cook or thaw it on Sunday and reheat for the rest of the week. There are a lot of sources online that seems to believe reheating cooked spinach is basically poison, but there doesn't seem to be much evidence behind that, so I'm not going for it.

Do you knowledgeable, talented people think I could saute, blanch, or steam a bunch of spinach, portion it out and send it with him? Or would unthawing frozen spinach and portioning it out work?

Thanks in advance!
