    I was wondering if you have used fresh organic spinach straight from the garden and if so, how much please?

    I made this last night! I bought the frozen spinach with 6 blocks inside, weighing 250grams, whoops! Still turned out so good, it made 4 squares instead… I honestly can’t get over how much it felt like I was eating bread!

    Have u tried this with other greens/veg? This looks awesome and much better than the pulp crackers I’ve been doing 🙂

    Trying this right now! What does “set” look/feel like? Dry?

    Hey,
    I am allergic to egg so would the egg replacement work, and what do you eat with it?
    Thanks

      Yes you could use flaxseed instead of eggs

    I tried making this, but it didn’t hold when I cut it into pieces and it was kind of moist when it was done baking. When I was mixing everything together, the spinach was still somewhat wet from thawing. Does the spinach need to be completely dry?

      yes it does really need to be as dry as possible

    Hi Lee, am really excited to try this recipe. If I made it fairly flat, do you think it would work as the base for a paleo pizza? 🙂

      It would have to be fairly flat and cooked through well. If it were me I would add almond meal to it and an extra egg.

    I must say, this recipe is a novel. I think I will try it with my green smoothy that I have every morning.

    Hi Lee,

    I tried this recipe and I agree it is delicious, however it would not hold together to toast it. Is there anything I should add in to help bind it?

    thanks

      The trick is to really squeeze as much liquid out of the frozen spinach as possible. That way it will hold together when toasted. Also i usually freeze in in slices so its easier to pop into the toaster, under the grill or in a sandwich press.
