Crustless Spinach Ricotta Quiche
* 12 cups well-washed fresh spinach or 2 packages frozen spinach, thawed
* 2 teaspoons olive oil
* ½ cup finely chopped onions
* 1 cup low-fat ricotta cheese
* ½ cup egg substitute or 2 whole eggs, beaten
* ½ teaspoon dried dill weed
* ¼ teaspoon pepper
* ¼ teaspoon salt
* pinch nutmeg
* 3 plum tomatoes, seeds and juice removed, chopped (1 cup)
* 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9" pie dish. Steam the fresh spinach until just wilted. (Frozen spinach won't need to be cooked, just thawed.) Press the water out of the cooked or thawed spinach and set aside.
2. Heat the oil in a small skillet and cook the onions until soft but not brown. Combine the ricotta cheese; egg substitute, dill, pepper, and nutmeg in a large bowl. Add the prepared spinach, tomatoes, and onions. Mix thoroughly and tip into the pie pan.
3. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the top and bake until set, about 30 minutes. Let the quiche cool for 5 or 10 minutes before serving.
