Side Dishes

Mini Spinach CakesSpinach cheese cakes are great because they’re packed with healthy veggies and protein, they’re portioned in little cakes, and you can make a bunch and reheat them later. They make good side dishes with lunch and dinner and can be packed in a lunch box as well. They also only take a few ingredients!


12 cups of adult spinach (remove the tough stems)
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
2 eggs
