One of the best ways to save money and get fresh food is to buy fruits and vegetables that are “in-season.” When fruits or vegetables are in-season, that means they are ready to pick and eat from the garden.
This sounds great, but what if you want to make cheesy spinach bites before your spinach has grown? Use the Fruit and Veggie Swaps Handout to find another vegetable you can use while the spinach is growing!
Today we’re using kale instead of spinach in our cheesy spinach bites!
First, gather all your ingredients. You’ll need onion, garlic, oil, eggs, low-fat cottage cheese, shredded cheese, and kale.
Next, heat up the onions and garlic in a fry pan until the onions are clear. After the onions and garlic are cooked, add them to a blender or food processor with all other ingredients. Mix until all ingredients are well combined. Spray a muffin tin. Pour batter in the tin until they’re full.
Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes at 375 degrees.
These bites make for great on-the-go breakfast or lunch snacks. Serve with fruit or a slice of whole-wheat toast.
