Simple Spinach Pie Recipe

I made this simple and great Spinach Pie recipe today for lunch. I actually took a recipe for Spanakopita and another one for a Ricotta Spinach Pie and played around with it to create my own version.

It turned out fabulous!

Ingredients

1 TBSP of coconut oil or olive oil

1 small onion, minced

2 cloves of garlic, minced

1 tsp of balsamic vinegar

1/4 tsp of black pepper

1 tsp of oregano

1 10 oz package of frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained

1/3 cup of liquid egg whites or 2 whole eggs.

1 cup of low fat cottage cheese

1/2 cup of feta cheese

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees

2. Prepare pie crust or take your bought pie crust out of the refrigerator and follow the directions on the box for preparing. The one I have used is Immaculate brand and it says to let it get to room temperature for 25-30 minutes before unrolling into the pie dish.

2. Heat oil in a small pan

2. Cook the chopped onion and garlic for about 10 minutes until onions are translucent.

3. In a small bowl, add the spinach (be sure to squeeze all the water out), balsamic, oregano, cottage cheese, feta cheese, egg whites, and pepper.

4. Add the onions and garlic after soft and mix together evenly.

5. Spoon into pie crust

6. Cook for 20 minutes.  Cover the crust foil or crust shield to keep from getting too brown.

    Now see, I grew up eating/loving spinach pie in all its forms – phyllo, puff pastry, pastry dough … it wasn’t until I moved to NY that I ever had it with vinegar, and I thought it was gross! This, however, sounds like a great balance with just that tough of balsamic. I don’t know what the heck they do to it here in NY, but it’s pretty bad as far as I’m concerned. Mine sounds pretty similar to yours except for a bit of semolina in mine and no balsamic. I’ll be very curious to try that next time. A co-worker once brought me some that had a distinct bite to it, but I couldn’t get the recipe out of her. Since then, I’ve been dicing a few pepperoncini peppers into mine – pretty close. I have to admit that spinach pie was probably my first “Kitchen Disaster.” I was going to make a tray for a friend’s baby shower but didn’t squeeze out enough of the liquid. That was pretty bad lol. Now I actually zap the spinach in the microwave for a few seconds to make it easier to squeeze out. Works like a charm. :) [#TastyTuesdays]
