SPINACH PIE

Hi….It’s been long time I posted anything online. Even though I wasn’t posting, I have been working on few recipes as usual on salt free. A lot of my family and friends have been opposing to “no sodium diet” but keeping “HEALTH” in mind I decided to not to give up.

I am proud of my kids to support me in this battle. I didn’t want to disappoint them so i have been and will keep trying all these recipes they love and of course new ones too to make them NO SODIUM.

You are right. I am here with a new recipe ( made some changes to the recipe i found on line).

Serving size:4
Prep time: 15-20  min
Cook time: 15 min

Ingredients:
Spinach (preferably fresh) 2 cups...cooked spinach tastes better
Cottage cheese 1 cup
Parmesan cheese 1/4 cup
Eggs 2
Black pepper (freshly crushed) 10-15 
Thyme (dried) a pinch
Nutmeg powder 1/8 tsp
Onion (diced) 1/3 cup
Garlic cloves (minced) 1 big
Curry powder 1 tsp
Jeera powder 1/2 tsp
Puff pastry sheet (1)

Procedure:
1.Saute the diced onion and minced garlic until the onion is 
translucent. 
2.In the mean time, mix the cottage cheese, parmesan cheese, 
nutmeg, black pepper,thyme,eggs. Then put in spinach (makesure
there is no water).
3.Now add the curry and jeera powder. Mix it to evenly distribute.
Add onion and garlic to this and mix it again.
4.I used the puff pastry sheet ( you can also make from scratch, i 
didn't have time). Roll into thin sheet after thawing. Now spread
this in oven safe bowl and put the above spinach mixture in the bowl
as shown in pics.
5.Close the ends into middle like you do for a pie. Fork on top so
that heat escapes and doesn't make it soggy.
