Ingredients

  • 1 pie crust refrigerated or homemade
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil or coconut oil
  • 1 small onion minced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 10 ounces package of frozen chopped spinach thawed and drained
  • 2 large whole eggs or ⅓ cup egg whites
  • 1 cup low fat cottage cheese
  • ½ cup feta cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • 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.
  • Heat oil in a small pan
  • Cook the chopped onion and garlic for about 10 minutes until onions are translucent.
  • 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.
  • Add the onions and garlic after soft and mix together evenly.
  • Spoon into pie crust
  • Cook for 20-25 minutes. Cover the crust foil or crust shield to keep from getting too brown.

Notes

Use ricotta instead of cottage cheese
Add diced mushrooms if preferred
Add diced cooked bacon if desired
Use a gluten free crust if needed.
