    Health Benefits

    Spinach, the primary ingredient in this dish is similar to other leafy green veggie in that it is a great source of folate. Folate is a B vitamin that is needed to help your body generate DNA and certain genetic material. Your cells need folate to divide and replicate. Folate deficiencies are rare in most parts of the world, but they can be dangerous when they occur. A folate deficiency can result in fatigue, irritability, heart palpitations, and trouble concentrating. It can also lead to neural tube defects in infants when women don’t get enough folate during pregnancy.
