Spinach Squares


Spinach Squares

This recipe for vegetarian spinach squares is inexplicably popular with kids who wouldn't otherwise choke down a spinach leaf.


  • 3 eggs , lightly beaten
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 4 cups raw spinach , coarsely chopped
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • Measure all the ingredients into a bowl – the larger the better. Hand your child a wooden spoon and have her mix everything until evenly combined. If necessary, give the mixture a stir yourself (when she’s not looking) just to make sure. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Pour into a greased 9 x 13 in.(22 x 33 cm) baking pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the top is golden and the mixture is slightly puffed.
  • Cut into squares and serve hot or at room temperature.
