Frozen Spinach

Frozen Spinach

When you don't have fresh spinach on hand, frozen blocks or bags make for an excellent alternative. Microwave, season, and enjoy as a standalone side dish or add to dips, pasta dishes, soups, stews and more.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.

Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.


To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time. 

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.


Cook Times


1 cup (75g) 4 mins
3 cups (225g) 7-8 mins
5 cups (375g) 9-10 mins


  1. Evenly spread the spinach in the Anyday dish and cover with the lid (knob lifted).
  2. Cook in the microwave for the time listed in the table, or until spinach is steamed and heated through.
