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!

Leek & Spinach Egg Bake - Fabulous combination of fall flavors!

[recipe title=”Leek & Spinach Egg Bake” servings=”3″ time=”approx 1 hour” difficulty=”easy” image=”” description=”A tasty combination of fall flavors.”]

[/recipe-notes] [recipe-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)

[/recipe-ingredients] [recipe-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.
9. Place in oven and bake for approximately 15 minutes – until the egg whites are done and egg yolk still soft.
10. Garnish with parsley, or other favorite herbs and enjoy!
9. 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.
10. I will often add a cup or two of beef or chicken broth during the remaining 10

    It was delicious! We had it for lunch today – Next time I will probably add about double the garlic though – we reallyyyy like garlic and it needed a tad bit more for our liking…

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!
