i think that mixing various soy, beans, seeds and tofu into your diet on a regular basis will help increase your iron intact. here's a website that has the breakdown of what iron, protein, calcium, and so on rich vegan options really have:

I eat spinach daily when possible. lots of Quinoa as well... beans, lentils. Last time I had my blood checked my doctor said to keep doing whatever I was doing for my iron.

I'm try to eat raw so I have spinach salads every day. I also take a womens multi-vitamin (without Calcium). Calcium and Iron taken at the same time make neither absorbed by the body, according to my doctor. If you need a calcium supplement, take it separately from your iron supplement, about 3-4 hours apart.

I'd really steam your spinach lightly before you eat it, so you can actually digest it without any problems :).
