If you are learning how to cook spinach, you will find many recipes both for raw and cooked spinach. I cannot say I have a preference because both can be equally delicious. Both depend a lot on the added ingredients; I am not fond of it either way without good seasonings.
To learn how to cook spinach, try it in different forms such as fresh, canned or frozen to see which you like the best. Of course for fresh salad dishes you must have fresh spinach; for cooked dishes I also prefer the fresh spinach. I do occasionally purchase frozen spinach if necessary but I never like to use the canned spinach. For me the canned is just too soft and flavorless.
There is more of a reason to learn how to cook spinach than the delicious taste of spinach recipes; it is very high in nutritional value. There are many health benefits to this wonderful green vegetable. It is high in dietary fiber to help in digestion and it has many anti cancer and anti inflammatory properties. Vitamins C and E, beta- carotene, manganese, zinc and selenium in spinach are powerful antioxidants. Eating spinach helps to lower blood pressure and add beneficial eye protection that comes with age.
