Guest to the Seder: What can I bring to your Passover Seder?
Host: How about a vegetable dish?
Guest to the Seder: OK, great! (WTF?!?!?)
I have the solution to all your problems! This amazing vegetable side dish has become a fan favorite at our Seders. It’s so good that every year I say that I shouldn’t JUST make it on Passover. Then I remember the amount of margarine I use in it, and I think again. Oh well, holiday calories don’t count!!!
Spinach Passover Casserole
Author: Maybe originally the ORT cookbook
Recipe type: Side Dish
Serves: 8 servings
- 2 - 10oz. frozen spinach
- ½ cup margarine (a whole stick!)
- 1 clove garlic
- 2 tbsp. potatoe starch
- ½ can condensed onion soup
- ½ cup matzah meal
- 2 eggs (I use egg whites)
- salt and pepper to taste
- Cook spinach according to directions, drain well. Melt margarine in a skillet and sautee garlic. (I cheated and melted margarine in the microwave and scooped garlic from the jar). Blend potato starch, stir in onion soup, remove from heat. Stir beaten eggs and matzah meal into spinach, add soup mixture and salt and pepper. Pour into well greased ½ quart casserole dish. Bake at 350 for 25 mins.
Happy Passover to all!!! Keep your eyes peeled for a controversial Passover blog I have coming out on Kveller 🙂
