If using fresh spinach, steam it over rapidly boiling water 1 to 2 minutes,
until tender, then drain well. If using frozen, simply squeeze out the
excess moisture but do not cook. In a small bowl, combine the dehydrated
onion, flour, dry milk, onion powder, sugar, turmeric, and salt. In a
medium-size bowl, combine the remaining ingredients with the drained
spinach. Add the dry ingredients to the spinach mixture and mix well. Chill
for several hours. Serve in a hollowed-out bread round, if desired.
