I am confused about measuring — do I put broccoli in a measuring cup? What about all the air space? And what about spinach — do I need to pack it down? THANK YOU !! Elizabeth
Usually, about 5 broccoli florets equal a half cup of broccoli. As for spinach, about a half cup of cooked, unpacked spinach equals a serving. Check out these 1/2 cup and 1 cup visuals to help in measuring other fruits and vegetables.
