To kids, green is usually bad - Slimer from Ghostbusters, The Green Goblin, broccolli. Yuk. This recipe will convert them. It's green goodness (from a parents' point of view) disguised as green goodness (from a kiddie's point of view). Go green! Green is good!
1 cup Flour
1 tsp Salt
1/4 cup Frozen Spinach
1/4 cup Milk
100g frozen Spinach (roughly chopped)
1 handful Basil (chopped)
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese (grated)
1/2 cup Tomato sauce
Heat your oven to 200°C and grease a deep baking tray with some olive oil.
Blitz the egg, flour, salt, 1/4 cup spinach and milk together in a blender.
