can i use fresh spinach?
Hi Sarah, I’ve never tried fresh spinach in this recipe. I don’t see why not as long as you chopped it fairly finely. Let em know how it turns out.
I was also wanting to try this with fresh spinach…do you know roughly how much you would need to be the same amount as 6 frozen packets?
Im not sure it would work with fresh spinach? But if you want to try it out you would need 1 kilo.
[…] grownup food). I have added many of the dishes to our family menu but some absolute toppers are spinach toast and aromatic herb & garlic […]
Hi! I tried making this (with 2 packs of spinach so I didn’t have a mountain if it didn’t work) and it was really soggy when I finished. It ended up being inedible, so I wondered whether you have any tips?
I drained the spinach and I ended up having to cook it for about an hour, and still it was a bit of a soggy mess. I’d like to try again but need a better plan than last time! Also, how think should the spinach be on the pan? That may have been my problem (mine was thick enough that it was vertical slices rather than flat slices). I think I may also have still used 1 egg for 2 packets, but thought that should have helped it set, anyway? Thanks for your help!!
With this recipe you def need to use 5-6 packets of frozen spinach and one or two eggs max. I only use one large egg sometimes with 6 packets of spinach. It really needs to be drained super well so there is no moisture left in it. There is also a video on the webiste if that helps. The thickness is about the same as a thin slice of bread. I hope this helps. Lee
I tried fresh spinach last night, steamed in my Thermomix Varoma, I used 11/2 kilos but when cooked it was about 700gm. I worked out 6 boxes of spinach is 1 1/2 kilos of spinach 250g a box. It was a long process will have to make some using the frozen spinach to do a comparison. It may sound silly but, how do you toast the bread? It waiting for me in the freezer.
I had spinach bread for breakfast this morning with nut butter. I always toast mine on a flat sandwich press or under the grill because when you use a normal toaster it can sometimes be hard to get out.
Thanks. Might go have a slice with some sliced tomato for a snack.
Hi Lee and everyone, would this work with a ground flax/chia seeds instead of an egg to veganise? Loving your work. Care bear smiles
Yes it sure would 🙂
