Yield: 10 spinach pancakes
Ingredients
  • 1 (16 oz) package frozen chopped spinach
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil for frying
Instructions
  1. Thaw spinach in microwave, or in a saucepan over medium heat. Drain well, either by pressing on it in a colander or by placing the spinach inside a clean kitchen towel, and squeezing hard to get rid of as much water as you humanly can.
  2. Place the spinach, onion, parsley and garlic in a large bowl. Mix with a spatula to combine.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs with the salt and pepper. Add the egg mixture and the Parmesan to the spinach mixture, mixing well with a spatula to combine.
  4. In a nonstick double-burner griddle or in two large nonstick skillets over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil (1 tablespoon in each skillet). Brush all over the griddle to evenly coat. Use a 4-tablespoon measuring cup or ice cream scoop to scoop out mixture, pressing down gently to flatten. Cook 3-4 minutes on each side, until well-browned and crisp. Briefly drain on paper towels before serving.
