French-Style Spinach Balls

January 27, 2018


6 cups fresh spinach leaves, trimmed and washed (to yield 2/3 cup cooked)

3 cups boiling water

3 eggs

1/2 cup grated cheese of choice 

1/4 cup fresh herbs of your choice, finely chopped (parsley, dill, or basil)

1 cup Gluten Free Panko Crumbs

1/2 tsp. garlic salt



1. Preheat oven to 350F

2. Trim and wash the fresh spinach leaves.

3. Place the leaves in a large mixing bowl and over with boiling water. Cover and set aside for 3 minutes.

4. Rinse the spinach with cold tap water. Drain using your hands to squeeze all the remaining water to obtain about 2/3 cup. (If using frozen spinach, defrost and measure for 2/3 cup)

5. Finely chop the cooked spinach and transfer to a mixing bowl.

6. Add eggs, cheese, herbs and panko gluten free crumbs. You can also add salt and pepper if your cheese is not very salty.

7. Combine with a spoon or your hands, until it forms a batter from which you are able to form balls with your hands.

8. If too moist add a little more crumb until easy to roll as ball with the palm of your hands.

9. Place the balls on a non-stick cookie tray lined with baking paper.

10. Bake at 350F for 15-20 minutes or until golden on the top.

11. Serve with a dip of your choice (pesto, hummus, or homemade ketchup). Serve immediately or keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
