I have been lazy today since morning , having fun watching TV. Some times you like to have that free time for your self. Then after a while i realized it’s time for kids snack. They will be coming from school and i have to make the snacks or lunch because my son he doesn’t eat his lunch at school. He will be coming home hungry so sometimes i make lunch instead of snack. Today i have to make lunch because he took a cheese salad for lunch and i knew he would be really hungry once he comes home. I was thinking what to make today and i looked in the fridge for vegetables. I found a box of fresh spinach which will go bad soon if i don’t use in couple of days. I decided to do some thing with it. I checked online to find a recipe with spinach and i found a recipe with different cheeses and salt. I was disappointed first because i was trying to do something different that my kids never ate.
I said to myself,”i can make some changes to the recipe and make my own to get a new taste without salt but yummy. Huh….is it going to work? I changed a lot of recipes before for my taste. I will give it a try again…..”.
You don’t believe it was a huge success. My kids loved it. So i want to share that recipe with you….
Ingredients: 1 and 1/2 to 2 cups of cooked spinach (just steam...i don't like to use frozen spinach so i get fresh ones). 1/3 cup or less diced onion ( i used yellow onion). 1 garlic clove diced. 1 teaspoon dried rosemary leaves ( i crushed them to powder). 3 eggs. 1/3 cup milk. pepper to taste. parmesan cheese grated ( i want to use vegan next time.. i will let you know how it goes). mozarella cheese grated too. 1 and 1/3 cup cooked rice. 1 and 1/2 to 2 tbsp melted butter. Directions: Pre-heat oven to 350F. Take a pan and put in spinach, onions, garlic on low heat covering with a lid. Mix it often so it doesn't stick to the pan since we don't use oil. And also make sure you cook rice too. Almost forgot, melt butter also. At the same time, i grated mozarella cheese since i don't have any grated ones at home. Once you have cooked spinach ready to go, combine with beaten eggs, parmesan cheese and milk. Add melted butter too to this mixture. Mix well. Pour this in a oven safe container and bake it for 25 min. In the last 3 to 5 min, add mozarella chesse on top. Now waiting for that 5 min to end felt like forever. I wanted to tas te it to make sure kids are going to love it if not i have to make changes or need to cook something else. To my surprise, it turned out so awesome to look and taste. We need to enjoy what we eat so you can make anything you like by adding and deleting the ingredients you don't like to make a new one for your taste.
