Leek & Spinach Egg Bake

This week has been filled with a variety of foods.  Leeks were one more of the exciting foods which arrived in my recent AzureStandard order.  And, once again, my search for a recipe began.  I came across this one at The Tasting Table which fit the bill for something unique to make.  As usual I made a few changes and the results were delicious!

A tasty combination of fall flavors.


Ingredients

  • 3 Leeks
  • 5-6 cups Baby Spinach
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 small Kale leaf
  • ¼ cup Coconut Milk
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/2 tsp salt (I use Himilayan or Real Salt)
  • 1 TB Coconut Oil or Grass-fed Butter
  • 2 TB of Olive Oil
  • Parsley (Optional garnish)

Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375
  2. Rinse and slice Leeks
  3. Melt Butter & Oil in stock pot, add in Leeks.
  4. Lightly saute while chopping up Spinach, Garlic, Kale and Salt
  5. Add Spinach & Garlic, continue to saute about 3-4 min
  6. Add Coconut Milk and stir for 1 minute.
  7. Spoon mixture into individual large ramekins. Place filled ramekins on a baking sheet. Make a small indentation in the center for egg. Be careful to not break the yolk when cracking the egg.
  8. Place in oven and bake for approximately 15 minutes – until the egg whites are done and egg yolk still soft.
  9. Garnish with parsley, or other favorite herbs and enjoy!
  10. TIPS – I purchase big containers of fresh baby spinach and put the container directly in the freezer. The spinach freezes without sticking together and is very easy to crumble when I am ready to use it.
  11. I will often add a cup or two of beef or chicken broth during the remaining 10

  1. Hubby can’t have it because of the leeks, too bad, it sounds healthy and yummy. Will have to make separate dishes. I should post my recipe for a bok choy and pea egg bake on my English site (have it on the French one already). So many recipes, so little time!
