Spinach is way more than just a boring salad green or a soggy side dish. With just a little love and creativity, you can turn this superfood staple into an incredible meal that will shock your family and friends. Try a new take on spinach with our easy peasy (and cheesy!) Spinach Feta Pie recipe.
A fresh baked pie is the perfect way to transform fresh produce into a delectable dish. While most tasty pie recipes feature fresh fruity flavors, we think that a few savory pies are essential for your healthy recipe book. Of course, The Leaf has plenty of recipes for well-known classics, such as chicken pot pie, shepherd’s pie and pizza pie. However, you need something new and exciting that will get you pumped up and ready for dinner!
Our veggielicious Crustless Spinach Feta Pie recipe fits the bill: It presents spinach in a whole new way that you’ve never tried before! This elevated take on creamed spinach features crunchy pine nuts and three different cheeses, all baked to perfection in a pie pan.
To make this healthy spinach pie recipe, get started by mixing together four ounces of low fat cream cheese with four eggs and four cloves of minced garlic. Stir in four cups of thawed frozen spinach (make sure to squeeze out the liquid) and season the mixture with black pepper. Add in six ounces of crumbled feta cheese, two ounces of asiago cheese and a quarter-cup of pine nuts. Gently toss the ingredients together, then pour it all into a pie pan greased with nonstick cooking spray.
Place the spinach pie in an oven preheated to 350 degrees. You’ll bake it for 30 to 35 minutes. Let it cool for five minutes before slicing and serving!
One of the things that make this Spinach Feta Pie so great is that it’s so easy to make and bake! No pie crust to knead and no complicated steps to perform. Plus, the ingredients are all common household staples that you probably already have in your pantry! (Except for the pine nuts and asiago cheese, which are easy enough to find at your local grocery story.)
The absence of crust also makes this spinach pie low carb! If you’re on the Nutrisystem weight loss plan, you can log it as two PowerFuels, one Extra and half of a Vegetable serving in your NuMi app journal. It clocks in at just 215 calories.
