Crustless Curried Spinach Tart

This recipe comes from McCormick. It is similar to a quiche or frittata.  It would be great for brunch, breakfast for dinner, or an appetizer.  You could cut it into wedges or into small squares for an appetizer portion.

  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F; spray a 9-inch deep dish pie plate with cooking spray.

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat.  Cook onion until tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from skillet and cool slightly.

In a large bowl, whisk together milk and flour until smooth.  whisk in eggs, egg whites, curry powder, seas salt, garlic powder, and ground red pepper.  Add cooled onion, spinach, and ricotta cheese and mix well. Pour into the prepared pie plate.
