Health Highlights


1 dash Black pepper (freshly ground)
1/2 cup Cottage cheese (1% M.F.)
2 large egg Egg (beaten)
1 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
1 bunch Spinach
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded (plus more for garnish)


Preheat oven to 400°F/200°C.

Pulse spinach in three batches in a food processor until finely chopped. Transfer to a medium bowl. Add cottage cheese (or ricotta cheese), parmesan, eggs, garlic, salt and pepper; stir to combine.

Coat 8 cups of the muffin pan with cooking spray. Divide the spinach mixture among the 8 cups (they will be very full).

Bake the spinach cakes until set, about 20 minutes. Let stand in the pan for 5 minutes. Loosen the edges with a knife and turn out onto a clean cutting board or large plate.

Serve warm, sprinkled with more Parmesan, if desired.
