  1. love this idea! and you can mix up the greens/nuts for endless variations!

  2. Spinach is my favorite vegetable, so versatile. Love the creativity behind this gluten free crouton. Brilliant!

  3. I love that this isn’t bread-based. Spinach and almonds go well together and I love the extra crunch (and vitamins) this adds to salad and soup
