Cheesy Spinach Cakes

Add an elegant appetizer to your holiday table and get a head start on your New Year’s resolution with this perfect-portion recipe. Fresh spinach and creamy ricotta make these cakes delicious and cancer protective. Research is mounting that leafy greens may help protect against certain cancers because of their high concentration of fiber, folate and carotenoids. Weighing in at just 80 calories, they’re the perfect proportion of nutrition and flavor to help you kick start those new health goals.


12 oz. fresh baby spinach
1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese (low-fat cottage cheese may be substituted)
1/4 cup shredded Romano (Parmesan cheese may be used)
3 large eggs - preferably cage free organic (can substitute 2 large eggs, plus 2 egg whites, beaten)
2 cloves garlic, minced
Freshly ground pepper to taste
Extra virgin olive oil to coat cooking surface

(As always, choose organic content and fresh content as much as possible for the healthiest recipe.)


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Use food processor and pulse spinach until it is finely chopped, but don't overdo it. Place spinach in bowl. Add cheeses, eggs, garlic and pepper. Stir to combine well.

3. Coat 8 "cups" of a muffin pan (1/2 cup size)* lightly with olive oil. Spoon in spinach mixture. Bake about 20 to 22 minutes. Remove pan from oven and let stand 6 or 7 minutes to allow spinach cakes to firm up. Loosen sides with knife and gently lift out.

4. Sprinkle a bit of additional Romano or Parmesan on top (optional) and serve warm as a great appetizer or side dish.

*For bite-sized spinach cakes use a 24 "mini-muffin" pan and bake 12-14 minutes

Makes 8 servings. (8 appetizers or 4 side dish servings.)
