Frozen Spinach -- what to do with it?

valerie | Aug 13, 2007 12:55 PM

As I've mentioned before on this board, I am very lucky in that I have 2 small chowhounds (ages almost 3 years old and almost 11 months old). They eat everything!

When my husband was out the other night, I was feeding them dinner, which consisted of turkey meatballs and little spanakopita that I buy at Trader Joe's. I keep the spanakopita in the freezer, just to mix things up once in a while. My son, almost 11 months old, couldn't really eat the flaky pastry part (too flaky) but I was giving him the spinach/feta filling on a fork and he loved it.

So it got me thinking about how I could prepare frozen spinach in order to make it tasty, without adding a lot of fat. The only thing that I could come up with was to make a spinach/cheese bake kind of thing, so I bought low-fat cottage cheese the next day. The recipe that I have includes, frozen spinach, cottage cheese, eggs, bread crumbs (actually it really calls for matzoh meal, since it's a Passover recipe!) and some spices. It's very easy and good, but I was wondering if anyone else has any suggestions for a tasty, easy spinach dish?
