This was the result of an "empty out the pantry" night, and WOW was it tasty. It is fairly healthy, too! Note: cooking time includes 1 hour for baking potatoes.
- 4 medium baking potatoes
- 1 1⁄2 cups chopped asparagus
- 1 1⁄2 cups fresh spinach
- 1⁄4 cup boursin garlic & herb spreadable cheese
- 1⁄2 cup skim milk
- 2 cups imitation crabmeat (flake style)
- 1⁄4 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese
- salt and pepper
- Scrub potatoes and bake using your preferred method.
- While potatoes are baking, steam asparagus and spinach until asparagus is crisp-tender.
- Place veggies in a bowl and add boursin, milk, and crab meat.
- When potatoes have cooled enough to touch, slice each in half lengthwise and scoop out the flesh into the bowl. Leave about 1/4 inch of flesh for each shell.
- Mix the veggies, cheese, milk, and potatoes until the potato flesh falls apart and becomes somewhat smooth. You may need to smash the larger chunks against the side of the bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Fill each potato shell (you'll need to really pack it in, and there may be some left for nibbling while you wait :>).
- Sprinkle each shell with 1 Tbsp mozzarella.
- Bake at 375 for 12-15 minutes, or until heated through.
I made a modified version just using the boursin cheese with my baked potatoes, it was quite tasty and was very complimentary to the other dishes I served. I look forward to trying the recipe as written. Made for ZWT 8 by one of The Wild Bunch
Delicious, and really easy to make, especially if you cheat with a few ingredients as I did: I used frozen spinach and canned asparagus. I made 2 servings and for us this made a complete, really yummy and totally satisfying meal. I'm really not sure what imitation crab is, though I've seen it in lots of Zaar recipes, so I used a can of pink salmon. And for my baked potatoes, I used some from bcmnicol's Crock Pot Baked Potatoes. Since finding this recipe I make them regularly: it's just so great to have baked potatoes on hand for other recipes such as this one. I did use boursin and mozzarella, though regular not low-fat. And as well as some grindings of black pepper, I added some garlic salt. A recipe I'll certainly make again. Thank you for sharing it, smellyvegetarian. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
