I discovered that one way of getting teenagers to eat
LF is to prepare meals and bake them. Leftovers are cut up
and left in the fridge for those "unexpected" hunger pains
in between meals. I need some bake ideas/recipes.
This is something that I tried last night.
I dont have measures but it was simple:
Spud n Spinack Bake
Equal amounts of mashed potatoes (leftovers or nuke some
whole potatoes and scoop flesh out) and chopped up cooked
spinach or silverbeet (not sure if it is known by that name
in the US. It is like spinach but larger, darker green and
Can also use frozen spinach.
Mix in bowl with some ricotta or cottage cheese and some
LF sour cream. Sprinkle some black pepper to taste. Leave
standing while you do the onions and spices.
Saute some shallots (or onions) in balsamic vinegar and a
drop of lemon juice. Put some garlic paste to taste.
Sprinkle your favourite spices. I used oregano, cumin and
paprika. Stir for a a couple of minutes to blend flavours.
Then put onion mix into the potato/spinach mix and blend
well with a wooden spoon.
Spray some oil/Pam in the bottom of an oven proof
container and spoon in the mix.
Cover with a thin layer of bread crumbs and/or LF grated
cheese of choice.
I do not use any cheese at all and it turned out OK.
Bake at round 375 F for about 25 min. I have
2 ovens in my kitchen and the times for baking are different
so check every 10 minutes or so and adjust accordingly.
Serve as a snack or with cold salad.
Hope you enjoy and await some of your ideas.
