    How much does 6 packets amount to in grams or cups?

  2. Marianne says:

    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 🙂

  5. Bee says:

    Do u blend or put this into a food processor… Or are the leaves whole?

  6. Lesley says:

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

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

  8. Devon says:

    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?

  9. Super excited to try this! I love your website. I was recommended through a Candida Support group. Thanks for such amazing work!

    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? 🙂

    • lee says:

      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?


    • lee says:

      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.

    This looks great! Do you toast it straight from the oven, or defrost it first? thank you
