Spinach is one of the healthiest greens you can eat, so use your fresh or frozen spinach in this easy dish. It is a great alternative to plain spinach and it will even get the kids to try this vegetable.

Serves: 6
Preparation Time: 5 min
Cooking Time: 45 min

10 ounces fresh spinach, whole or 12 oz frozen; chopped
1/4 cup onion, chopped
4 egg whites, well beaten
2 tablespoons low-fat Parmesan cheese, grated
1 cup 1% milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup celery, chopped
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, ground


Wash fresh spinach and discard stems. Steam in a covered saucepan over low heat until the leaves are wilted.

Drain in a colander or sieve, press out liquid and chop spinach. (OR Thaw frozen chopped spinach and press out liquid.)

Mix remaining ingredients together, then fold in spinach. Pour mixture into a well greased 9 inch pie plate.

Bake at 375 degrees F for 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cut into 6 wedges and serve warm.
