Adapted from Sephardic Spinach Patties from Olive Trees and Honey.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and, if using, the garlic and sauté until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the spinach, bread crumbs, salt, pepper, and, if using, the nutmeg. Stir in the eggs. If the mixture is too loose, add a little more bread crumbs. The mixture can be stored in the refrigerator for a day.
  2. Shape the spinach mixture into patties. In a large skillet, heat a thin layer of oil over medium heat. In batches, fry the patties, turning, until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm, accompanied with lemon wedges.
