Spinach-Vegetable Kugel I (P, KLP, TNT)
Source: "MealLeaniYumm! All That's Missing is the Fat," by Norene Gilletz
Serves: 10-12

10 oz. package (300g) fresh spinach
2 onions, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
3 carrots, grated
1 cup mushrooms, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 eggs plus 2 whites (or 3 eggs)
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon each pepper and garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 cup matzo meal

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Wash spinach thoroughly. Remove and discard tough stems.

Cook spinach in a covered saucepan until wilted, about 3 minutes (or microwave on HIGH for 4 minutes). Don't add any water. The water clinging to the leaves will provide enough steam to cook it. Cool and squeeze dry.

Heat oil in a non-stick skillet on medium heat. Sauté onion, celery, red pepper and carrots for 5 minutes, until golden. Add mushrooms and cook 5 minutes longer (or cook vegetables uncovered in the microwave for 6-8 minutes on HIGH).

Chop spinach coarsely. Combine with remaining ingredients and mix well. Pour into a sprayed 7x11" Pyrex casserole.

Bake uncovered for 45-50 minutes, until firm. Cut into squares to serve.

Poster's Notes:
Reheats well or can be frozen.
