Chopping Timesaving Hack: Chop Spinach the Easy Way

You know I just HAD to use the word “hack” for a tip about chopping. There was no other way.

When I buy a giant bag of spinach or kale or other greens, I fill a gallon plastic bag with some. Then I throw it in the freezer.

When the spinach is completely frozen, I pull the bag out of the freezer and mash and crush it in my hands. The spinach leaves shatter into perfectly “chopped” little pieces in seconds.

Brilliant! (Thanks, Mom!)

Your kids might turn their noses up at it in a salad (and me—I admit I’m pretty picky about freshness), but they won’t know the difference in a casserole or this Grain-Free Keto Spinach Cauliflower Macaroni Inferno.

Not that I have so much experience with this sort of wasteful procrastination. Not me. Never. But if I did, that’s what I’d do.

Notes for Crustless Spinach Red Pepper Feta Quiche

If you’re wondering why this quiche doesn’t include the addition of salt, it’s because of the feta. The crumbled feta cheese in this quiche has plenty of salt for the whole dish. If you like things super salty, go ahead and try it with ¼ teaspoon pink Himalayan salt.

If you’ve never made a crustless quiche, you might be worried about leaving a layer of egg behind on your pie pan. I’ve done it myself a time or two, but if you follow the instructions for buttering your pan, it should come out fairly clean, leaving minimal bits of quiche behind.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Butter a pie pan by peeling down the top part of the wrapper of a cold cube of butter, and rubbing the cube along the bottom and sides of the pie pan. Be careful to cover pan thoroughly.
  3. Heat olive oil in skillet on medium heat. Add chopped red pepper and sauté for about ten minutes or until tender. Add garlic and sauté for 2 more minutes. Turn heat off and add spinach. Stir and set aside.
  4. Beat eggs in medium bowl. Add cream, feta, parmesan, and black pepper.
  5. Stir pepper and spinach mixture into the egg mixture. Carefully pour mixture into pie pan and bake in 375°F preheated oven for 25 minutes. Allow to cool for 15-20 minutes before slicing.

Notes

I almost always add salt to my quiches. Because the feta is usually salty enough, I don't add salt when I use feta in quiches.

  • You crack me up! I am like you though, with fresh produce, if it starts to even look slightly funky I cannot do it! What a great “hack” for the spinach. I will definitely remember this!

    • I know people who will just eat it anyway, but I just can’t! I’m glad I’m not the only weird one, LOL. AND, I’m so glad for hacks like this one! Thanks, Shelby!
