What’s in Our Spinach Casserole?
Despite not having meat for this recipe, you can still enjoy what a delicious spinach casserole can offer. It’s different from your usual creamy spinach casseroles. We combined the flavors of spinach, potato starch, and other pantry staples to create a savory casserole dish worth every bite. In our spinach casserole, we used two very specific main ingredients:
Spinach is an accessible vegetable that you can eat cooked, raw, or even on its own. We used frozen spinach in this recipe since it’s easy and convenient. While using fresh spinach can make it more flavorful, it requires a lot more preparation to achieve a rich and mildly bitter taste. Frozen chopped spinach only require a short amount of thawing and steaming for it to regain its robust taste. If you’re planning to use fresh raw spinach, remember to remove the stem and chop it finely. Afterwards, sauté with some grated garlic clove, and season with salt and pepper. Feel free to choose from the two kinds of available spinach. Either way, our this dish will still remain a rich and flavorful one-pot baked meal for everyone to enjoy.
The matzo meal is another interesting ingredient that we included for this recipe. Matzo meal is made from crushed matzo or matzah which is the traditional unleavened bread. It is the main ingredient for cooking a delicious matzo balls. You can also bake bread, or even cookies with it that you can appropriately serve during Passover. Matzo meals are often used as a substitute for flour since it’s an effective binding ingredient.
With these two ingredients, we’ll have ourselves a delicious and wonderful spinach casserole—a scrumptious dish worth every bite.
