Spinach

I have half a bag of spinach that needs used up asap

I was going to make a creamy broccoli soup should I just tear/shred the spinach and toss it in to that or something better?

I can easily use half a bag of spinach in one large, 3-egg omelette.

Why not make spinach soup?

It would be nice in the soup. You could also saute it and have it as a garnish to each bowl of soup.

Half a bag won't be much once cooked unless you found a 10 pound bag of it

Creamed spinach goes well with steak dishes. You could also make a spinach pasta!

Just what I was thinking too.

You could also make a nice spinach salad with some sliced mushrooms and red onion. One of my favorite salads.

You could make my favorite healthy version of Chicken Florentine.

Grill a coupla boneless, skinless chicken breasts until they are just about done but not completely cooked through.
Saute the spinach with a little garlic in evoo until just wilted, top the chicken with the spinach, then a thin slice of mozzarella or provolone.

Put in a hot oven until the cheese melts and the chicken finishes cooking through.
