Looking for an impressive dish that’s healthy and quick to make? This spinach casserole makes a traditional Passover side dish that you can serve on any special occasion or even just a regular dinner at home. It takes just a few basic ingredients to put together. Dump them in a casserole, pop it in the oven, and let time do the work for you.

Enjoy it on its own or pair it with chicken passover soup and caesar salad.

Tips on Making Spinach Casserole

This baked spinach casserole is packed with natural nutrients and antioxidants from the spinach. Matzo meal, which is made by breaking down traditional unleavened bread, binds everything together. It’s gluten-free, low carb, and meat-free, making it ideal for vegetarians. But in all honesty, even non-vegetarians will enjoy this hearty dish. 

Aside from being easy to make, this healthy egg spinach casserole recipe is one of those versatile dishes that you can switch and swap and tweak to your heart’s desire. To give you more ideas, we listed down these valuable tips:

 

  • You can use frozen or fresh spinach to make it. Make sure to thaw frozen spinach and drain as much liquid as possible by pressing them against a strainer. To prepare fresh spinach, remove the stems and wash them. Saute a handful in olive oil. The volume will shrink as they wilt. Keep sauteing spinach bunch by bunch until all wilted.
  • Turn it into a creamed spinach casserole by adding heavy cream, sour cream, cream cheese, cottage cheese, or any cheese that you prefer. The pop of color of shredded cheddar cheese will look beautiful on top of it!
  • If Matzo meal is not available in your area, worry not. You can replace it with any crackers you have on hand. You just have to break them down using a rolling pin or food processor. 
  • Bake them in medium-sized ramekins for personal-sized servings. Take note that baking time will decrease with smaller portions.

Frequently Asked Questions

What food goes with spinach?

Spinach goes well with meat and fish, and earthy, succulent vegetables like artichokes, spaghetti squash, and bell peppers. Complete your menu with our steak au poivre and smoked salmon linguini for a fancy dinner night! Or, simply saute some spinach with vegetables, mushrooms, and some leftover chicken in your fridge for a quick-filling meal.

What do I do if my spinach casserole is too runny?

A runny or watery spinach casserole is usually the result of not draining or sauteing the vegetables enough. So, they release their natural juices during baking. To fix this, spoon out as much of the liquid as possible into a bowl. Then, make a slurry by mixing in 1 teaspoon of cornstarch. After that, pour it back again into the baking dish. Bake for another 10 minutes or until boiling. The cornstarch will thicken it as it boils.
