Skillet Spinach Corn With Edamame Cilantro & Bacon Bits #SundaySupper


My Sunday Supper team is doing another round of favorite recipes from “100 recipes every mom should have‘  by  Katie Workman ! I had the book for the past month and have been using it a lot. So many lovely recipes that you can customize to suit your need. When I flipped through the book the corn spinach with scallions and bacon caught my eye. Just the colors made me want to literally eat the dish off the book ! I love eye appeal in a dish and with my “fussy with veggies ” family eye appeal is important. I made some changes to the dish. I used all the vegetables that Katie used and added some edamame to it to give it some  protein. I also added some cilantro and orange cherry tomatoes from my garden. They fit right in.  I also added some cumin and it complemented the pepper to give a subtle peppery spicy taste.  Well the dish was a hit and was all gone.  I’m quite sure this is going to be frequent dish in my home ! You can skip the bacon if you want a veggie/ vegan dish. If you do eat bacon, add it ! It adds so much “oomph” to the meal.

Nutrition Nuts and bolts.

Bursting with fiber, vitamins and minerals this dish has protein  courtesy of the edamame. A nice dish to incorporate for meatless meals. Not counting the bacon of course.



Cooking in progress.
