WHAT KITCHEN TOOLS DO I NEED TO MAKE KETO SPINACH PIE?


HOW DO I MAKE KETO SPINACH PIE?

You’ll want to thaw out two boxes of frozen chopped spinach. Depending on the brand, they’re 9-10 ounces.

Do yourself a favor and buy the frozen kind. There is no need to purchase fresh spinach and wilt it down…


Thaw the boxes out (this is usually in the microwave for me!) and then use these steps to get the water out of it:

  1. Place thawed spinach into a clean kitchen towel, do this near your sink! 
  2. Pull the corners of the spinach up
  3. Squeeze all the water you can out, over the sink.

Plop the spinach into a large mixing bowl.

Plop one 16 ounce container of cottage cheese into the bowl. 

Grate 2 cups of cheddar cheese into the bowl.

Crack 6 eggs into a bowl and whisk until combined.

Pour these into the big bowl and begin stirring everything together.

Grind some black pepper into the mix and sprinkle in some salt.

Bake at 375˚ for about 30 minute

Depending on your family, you can adjust the recipe. My older brother begs for more cheese. I beg for more spinach. I don’t like eggs — so, I use as few as possible! 


Other keto spinach pie makers have substituted cottage cheese for cream cheese, added mushrooms or onions into it. Others have added all kinds of veggies to use up with they have in their fridge! Some people have used 12 eggs so the recipes will bake in a 9×13 baking dish, and you can serve twice as many.
