Recipe Ingredients for Parmesan Spinach Cakes

12 ounces fresh spinach, (see Note)
1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese, or low-fat cottage cheese
1/2 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese, plus more for garnish
1/2 cup egg beaters
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Recipe Directions for Parmesan Spinach Cakes

  1. Preheat oven to 400F.

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

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

  4. 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.

  5. Tips & Notes

  6. Make Ahead Tip: Equipment: Muffin pan with 12 (1/2-cup) muffin cups

  7. Note: Baby spinach is immature or young spinach?it's harvested earlier than large-leaved mature spinach. We like the sturdy texture of mature spinach in cooked dishes and serve tender, mild-flavored baby spinach raw or lightly wilted. Baby and mature spinach can be used interchangeably in these recipes (yields may vary slightly); be sure to remove the tough stems from mature spinach before using.

  8. Weights & Measures - 10 ounces trimmed mature spinach=about 10 cups raw or 10 ounces baby spinach=about 8 cups raw
