crustless spinach and cheese pie

This crustless spinach and cheese pie is a delicious and satisfying go-to meal. It’s especially nice when coming home from a cold, but good long walk in the outdoors.

Warm, cheesy goodness mixed with spinach and the flavours of onion and garlic make for a gorgeous warm pie dish with no need for crust at all.

Being on a keto diet I could go and make a keto friendly pie crust but why bother? This crustless pie has enough wholesome goodness in it to satiate without it. Plus, there are only 3g of carbs per serving.

If you are on a keto or low carb diet then this is a simple recipe suitable for you, but also your guests or family members, regardless of their dietary choices:

Tips on preparing the spinach:

Wilted spinach is called for in this recipe. If using frozen wilted spinach, make sure you thaw it completely and get it as dry as possible to avoid a soggy pie.

If using fresh spinach like I did, then wilt it down in a pan, but also be sure to let it dry as much as possible.

Oh, and before we get into a debate, I call it a crustless pie. Some may call it a crustless quiche, or even a frittata. Whatever you call it, enjoy!

I chose to use cheddar cheese in my pie, but you can use virtually any cheese of your choosing. Grated mozzarella or swiss cheese are great alternatives. You could even use a mix of cheeses including feta for a lovely Greek taste.

This recipe is also so very adaptable. You can use it as a base and then add your own ingredients to taste, including mushrooms or bacon.

Equipment needed: A 9 inch/23 cm pie dish or tin.
