  20. Looks great. Did you chop the spinach with a knife or in a blender to get it so fine?

  21. It was baby spinach , I piled the leaves one on top another , rolled the pile into cigar shape and then finely chopped it Ryan, bit tedious but great results.You could just put it into a food processor if you wanted. but be careful you do not want spinach puree as it will tint rice green.
