Can I Use Fresh Spinach Instead of Frozen
Yes. You will just need to wilt your Spinach slightly beforehand. So in a skillet add a drizzle of olive oil along with your spinach.
Allow the spinach to cook down a bit and then let it cool. Then gently try and squeeze out excess liquid before placing in the instant pot.
