Recipe Box 26 - Spinach is King


Come and join me in spinach heaven, a place where spinach is king.  I have made a number of recipes with spinach, the past week as well as this one.  I, particularly like this recipe but I frown at what it was called at Allrecipes.  The title was Spinach Brownies and these are nothing like brownies, even savory ones.  This makes a good casserole or kugel. It is creamy and has a lovely spinach taste, altered by the cheese. 

Spinach Casserole (adapted from Allrecipes)
Ingredients:

1 (10 ounce) package frozen spinach,
1 cup gluten-free flour mixture (Bob's Red Mill)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/4 cup olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 (8 ounce) package
shredded Mexican cheese combo
Method


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F . Lightly grease a round or square casserole.

Place spinach in a medium saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil. Lower heat to simmer and cook until spinach is limp, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

In a large bowl, mix gluten-free flour, salt and baking powder. Stir in eggs, milk and butter. Mix in spinach, onion and cheese.

Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven 35 to 40 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Heat hot and bubbly.  Eat and enjoy.

  8. Chaya, I can see the Christmas recipes are beginning to come out! How exciting :) This is such a wonderful time of the year, one which everyone seems to get an extra burst of creativity. Your recipe sounds like there is a great blend of flavors between the spinach and the cheese. I believe I will incorporate this into my Christmas meal. Every year I try to serve something new. And the color? Well, that just fits perfectly LOL. Hope you are having a wonderful week!
