Spinach and Goats cheese bites - makes approx 10
Two blocks of frozen chopped leaf spinach (this weighed 45g or about 1.5oz)
1 slice of bread, chopped into small cubes
50g, 2oz soft, creamy goats cheese, crumbled
25g, 1oz extra mature or vintage cheddar (sharp cheddar)
A few grindings of freshly grated nutmeg
Defrost the blocks of spinach and mix with the bread (I used a sunflower and chia seed bread but you can use any bread you like). Crumble in the goats cheese and grate or crumble in the cheddar. Add the eggs and nutmeg and mix.
Oil a mini muffin tin with olive oil and fill each hole with the mix. Refrigerate until ready to cook.
Preheat the oven to 200oC / 400F and cook for 15-18 minutes (16 minutes in my fan oven) or until well browned and cooked through.
Serve with vegetables. I have no idea if these are good cold, probably but they were too tasty warm and they all got eaten!
If you like this, you might like broccoli nuggets or courgette and feta bites.
For those who know me very well, you may be aware life is pretty tough in the Mamacook household right now, I'm going through a difficult time with lots of things and my whole life feels up in the air. So, much in the style of Amelie, I am cultivating a love of simple pleasures.
|Home grown! Not bad|
Today picking my first ever home grown strawberries (which had escaped the slug onslaught) and giving them to my son as pudding was very much a simple joy. There is something which feels so wonderful about eating a fruit or vegetable moments after picking it.
