ISO a use for spinach stems

Does anyone else stem their spinach? After I've a tub full of stems that usually get thrown away with a handfull left for soup stock. Any suggestions on how I can make a dish out of them or what I might be able to add them to?

Thanks,

If it's young spinach no, I use them. Bigger leaves yes, if I am using in a salad, no if I am sauteeing. You could use them for a vegetable stock though.

you could chop and add to mashed potatoes for a champ or colcannon type thing.

they're also good blanched and tossed in sesame oil.

hmm, i guess chooped and added to a soft cheese stuffing for chicken or chops.

Add them to basil when you make pesto.
