Broccoli vs Spinach

In a vegetable death match based on nutritional value, who would win?

I have come to despise spinach lately, but I can mow down bag after bag of broccoli.

I eat tons of both. I think brocolli is a bit more versatile kitchen wise though.

+1...I agree with this and I do love to eat both. I eat more spinach than broccoli though.

I think spinach is one of the better green leafy vegges. I always thought broccoli was the be-all end-all, but I realized it's only because my Mom made me eat it because it was good. I think it was just because it was cheap at the time.

So far as versatility, spinach can be chopped small and thrown in any cooked dish at the very very end of cooking. You probably won't taste it, unlike broccoli which has more of a noticable texture and flavour - for better or worse depending on what you're eating.
