Chimchurri Spinach Kugel



At first, I was making a plain spinach kugel but when peering in the refrigerator, I saw a little chimchurri dip left.  We do not waste if we can help it so into the kugel, it went.  I have no idea what chimchurri tastes like so it is hard for me to evaluate the dish.  I know, I liked it.

Chimchurri Spinach Kugel

Ingredients:

4 - 6  cups fresh baby spinach
1 teaspoon of olive oil
1 large onion, diced
1/4 cup chimchurri dip (store bought)1 tablespoon flour
2 eggs (I think 3 might have worked better)
1 teaspoon onion powder
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Method:

Saute onion in heated olive oil.  

In a large bowl, place spinach and add cooked onions.

Add chimchurri dip, flour, eggs, nutmeg, onion powder, salt and pepper,

Mix all ingredients together, mixing well.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 - 45 minutes.  It should be dry when you put a knife into it.

Eat and enjoy.

  1. What a GREAT idea, Chaya! I love Chimchurri which I find pretty surprising since I'm not a huge fan of cilantro. I think cilantro is a main ingredient in Chimchurri but don't quote me on it, lol...

    The thought of Spinach Kugel with a taste of chimchurri sounds quite enticing. I'll be pinning this for sure! Thanks so much for sharing, Chaya...

    P.S. Did you see my post calling for meatballs? We're getting ready for Meatball Day, March 9th. Check out my blog or send me a meatball link if you would like to "play."

  2. I've never had chimichurri. But since this kugel is loaded with spinach I'm on board!
