Cooking Time45 min

Cooking MethodCasserole, Oven


  • 10 ounces fresh spinach (or 12 ounces of frozen chopped spinach)
  • 1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup celery, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup Italian-style or plain bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons low-fat grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg
  • 4 egg whites


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and spray a deep dish pie plate or 8-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. If using fresh spinach, remove stems, wash thoroughly, and place immediately (so that some water clings to the leaves) into a 4-quart saucepan set over medium-low heat. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Tip out onto a kitchen towel, roll tightly and squeeze out all moisture. Place on a cutting board and roughly chop.
  3. If using frozen spinach which is already chopped, place into a wire sieve or colander and run warm water over it until it is completely thawed and separated, then roll in a towel and squeeze out all moisture. There is no need to chop further.
  4. In a large bowl, combine milk, celery, breadcrumbs, 1 tablespoon of the Parmesan, the salt and nutmeg. Stir. Add the spinach and stir well.
  5. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat egg whites to form stiff peaks. Fold egg whites gently into the spinach mixture until no large clumps of egg white remain. Spoon into the prepared baking dish and sprinkle with the remaining tablespoon of Parmesan.
  6. Bake for 45 minutes. Cut into wedges to serve while warm and puffy.

I liked the use of crunchy celery juxtaposed with the softer spinach. It's important to really squeeze out the spinach to minimize liquid in the casserole, and I'd probably add more Parmesan to the mix. It might make it a little bit less healthy, but would make the flavor more exciting. Nice and easy.

If I made this I would add some more herbs and spices - spinach doesn't have much of a taste and the Parmesan cheese isn't flavorful enough to really amp up it up.

This didn't have a lot of flavor, but it would make a good side dish. I like that it's easy to make.
