If you like spinach-cheese pie, try these simple but elegant-looking little spinach cakes.

"VERY tasty and easy to make! I used frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained/squeezed well, and I added a pinch of nutmeg. Also, when they were done, a pinch of shredded parm on top and browned them under the broiler. "

These were absolutely delicious.

These were absolutely delicious. I used the ricotta cheese, and made nine instead of eight which ended up being the perfect amount using an average muffin pan. Very much resembles a quiche.

easy, low calorie
Super healthy and low-carb

I used fresh baby spinach and should have squeezed out more water, because after baking they were soggy on the bottom...but still very good. I followed the recipe exactly (except using cottage cheese instead of ricotta--more protein and less carbs this way) and it works out perfectly. I think next time I'll add sun-dried tomatoes.

Super healthy and low-carb
Tasty Bites

There is so much you can do with these little morsels. I use non-fat ricotta cheese or cottage cheese and put in chopped water chestnuts and lower fat bacon bits. It makes a delicious lunch along with a fruit salad.

Tasty, filling, and low calories

This is a great recipe as-is, but we love it with some feta sprinkled on top in place of the extra parm! It complements the spinach very well.

Spinach Cakes using Cottage Cheese

I tried out this recipe today. My one change was to add 1/8 tsp nutmeg and used low-fat cottage cheese. The spinach cakes turned out very good though a little bland with the cottage cheese. I will make these again in the future but will be sure to use ricotta cheese. Also, the nutmeg was very light in taste and I will probably try 1/4 tsp instead. Also, to add more flavor, increase the garlic to at least 2 cloves. I may add a small shallot also as I like garlic and shallots with wilted spinach.

Good side dish with meat or fish
