My brother in law Brad came to visit Monday night and was excited to eat "your food." He was excited to see we were having roasted salmon drizzled with honey, roasted asparagus and spinach pie. He was afraid he was not going to get any meat :) What people often miss out on with "meat and potatoes" centered meals is that vegetables are delicious! This spinach pie is a perfect example! As you can see from the photo of what was left, it was a hit! I buy our spinach from Sam's Club. Our local Sam's Club has a 1 lb container of organic spinach for less than four dollars. That is an amazing deal!
Serves: 4 large portions or six small portions
1 lb organic baby spinach
1 Tbs garlic
sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper
1/8 cup sliced almonds
2 eggs, whisked
freshly grated parmesan cheese, enough to top pie, approximately 1/8-1/4 cup
Wilt spinach in a large skillet over low heat, it takes approximately 5 minutes. Remove spinach from pan.
Add garlic and almonds to the pan. Saute 1-2 minutes until lightly browned. Remove from heat. Place spinach in a food processor. Pulse until chopped. Place all ingredients except cheese in a bowl. Combine. Pour into a greased 8x8 pan. Top with cheese. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
