Meatless meal tonight, and low-carb besides! Turned out really tasty.

Artichoke/Mushroom/Spinach casserole


1/2 large onion, coarsely chopped
1/2 lb. fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 tbsp. minced garlic
1/2 stick butter for frying
1 16-oz. bag frozen cut leaf spinach, thawed & squeezed dry
1 cup sour cream
3 eggs, lightly beaten *
small handful grated parmesan
1 tsp. lemon juice
3/4 tsp. salt
¼ to ½ tsp. white pepper
¼ to ½ tsp. ground nutmeg
¼ to ½ tsp. dried oregano leaves, crushed
1 can artichoke hearts, drained & quartered
2 tbsp. almond flour mixed with 2 tbsp. vital wheat gluten for crumb topping
* I use jumbo eggs. If you use smaller ones, use four

Sauté onion & mushrooms in butter, add spinach.

Combine sour cream, eggs, parmesan, lemon juice & seasonings; blend well. Add to spinach mixture.

Grease a 1½ qt. baking dish, and spoon in half of the spinach mixture. Arrange artichoke hearts in even layer over spinach mixture. Spoon remaining spinach mixture over artichoke hearts and sprinkle almond flour mixture evenly over all.

Bake at 350F (175C) for about 45 minutes.

Thinking back on this, I'm going to drizzle the topping with a little melted butter next time . . . I think that would help it brown a little nicer.

Dang! I s'pose I oughta make it again too, one o' these days! lol!

Heading out tomorrow for three days on the road again, so more packing lunch and eating out. Lord I'll be thankful when all this running around is over . . . the old hermit in me is getting REALLY cranky, so now you can say you're acquainted with an honest-to-goodness hermit crab! (I know, I know . . . really really bad . . . :rolleyes:)

meurtelken you would like my soup!

1 can arti hearts
1 onion or shallot or scallions whatEVER, chopped
4 cloves garlic chopped
1 - 2 stalks celery chopped
Dill -- fresh or dry, be generous with it ... black pepper, paprika, hot pepper, nutmeg, etc, to taste

2 TBS butter.

Saute the above. Add 4 c broth or water. bring to a boil, cool "enough."

Pour into blender and puree WELL. Return to pan.

Add 1/4 c heavy whipping cream.

You may want to double this -- my 7 year old actually went rummaging into the fridge the next day, after it, for his snack! :D

Shanny, I made this Saturday night ... subbing Channa flour (Indian chickpea flour) for the high gluten stuff. A little butter on top would be good ...

But, my husband wrote KEEPER, underlined on the recipe, and stuck it on my kitchen counter, LOL. It was lovely.

Oh, and as to that SOUP ... forgot to mention adding the juice of 1/2 lemon!

But then, I also have forgotten to ADD the lemon and it was still good!

That's quite a system of communication you have, Linda! heheh! Maybe I'll make it tonight - it's a cool enough day to run the oven & take the chill off that way.


BTW, did you get any spillover celebrating of "the" win this weekend? I hope Columbia is still standing!

None, here other than the kid from Mission getting shot in Columbia. More than enough of that.

My husband is whacky -- but he definitely lets me know when he likes a recipe!
