I found this one on a Halloween website. The original name was a little unappetizing, so I changed it for everyday use. It's really good. Calls for fresh spinach, but I don't see why you couldn't use frozen if you wanted. I also used dried parsley instead of fresh.
- 1 cup minced onion
- 2 tablespoons chicken stock
- 1 lb fresh spinach
- 3 cups cooked rice
- 1 cup low fat cottage cheese
- 1⁄2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1⁄4 cup egg substitute
- 3 tablespoons fresh parsley
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons dill weed
- Preheat oven to 375.
- Spray 2 qt casserole dish with nonstick spray.
- In large skillet, saute onions and stock until soft.
- Add spinach and cook over low heat until the spinach is wilted and all the liquid is evaporated, stir constantly.
- In large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients.
- Fold in spinach mixture.
- Spoon into prepared dish and bake 25 min.
I liked this recipe. I also added garlic powder and salt and pepper. It was a bit bland but I thought it was tasty and ate leftovers the next day. My husband liked it ok and my young kids didn't care too much for it. I would make again for myself.
This was a great side dish. I used brown rice, ricotta cheese, and a regular egg instead of egg substitute all with excellent results. The dill gave it good flavor, but I still had to add a decent amount of salt and pepper because I did find it a little bland. I'll be making this again. Thank you for posting.
Delicious! I added a little garlic powder and gave my spinach a whirl through the food processor to chop it finely so my kids would eat it better. Also, I only used about 1/2 lb. of spinach instead of a full pound. I will certainly be making this many times in the future!
