Spinach Parmesan Bites

I found this awesome recipe on Dish by Trish (called Green Goddess) and adapted it slightly.


  • 1/4 cup water
  • Raw baby spinach (5-6 cups)
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green onion
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • Balsamic vinegar to drizzle


1.     Preheat the oven to 375F.

2.     In a large skillet over low heat, place water and spinach and cook for 2 minutes or until wilted tossing occasionally. Remove from heat.

3.     In a large bowl, combine spinach with all remaining ingredients (green onion through sea salt). Mix until well combined.

4.     Shape mixture into 1-ounce smooth balls. Place on baking sheet, about 2 inches apart, and bake for about 12 minutes.

5.     Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and serve warm.

I served mine with grilled squash and zucchini, herb-roasted chicken, sweet potato and Caresse salad.
