Last night's dinner was good. Spinach, Mushroom & Artichoke pie.

I simply cannot get enough spinach these days. We had some left-over mushrooms and some artichokes, so we had this for dinner last night. Recipe here.

(I feel that the online recipe is merely a guideline.)

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided (I used avocado oil, and less than that.)
  • 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs (I used 3-cheese flavored bread crumbs)
  • 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 pound fresh spinach, chopped and cooked (Just put about a lb. of spinach in a pan with about 1/3 cup of water for MAYBE 3 minutes. Then it's cooked.)
  • 1 (6.5 ounce) jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained and quartered (Mine were in oil, so I rinsed as much oil off of them as possible.)
  • 1 cup day-old bread cubes (I used 2 slices of "toasted" multigrain bread and cubed it.)
  • 1 1/4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese, divided (I used a "Mexican mix" of cheeses that included cheddar.)
  • 1 (4 ounce) jar diced pimientos, drained (Didn't use. Don't like.)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (I used fresh garlic. Two cloves. Sauteed with the mushrooms.)

  1. Brush the bottom and sides of a 9-in. pie plate with 2 tablespoons oil; (I used half that.) sprinkle with bread crumbs. Set aside.
  2. In a skillet, saute mushrooms in remaining oil and garlic; drain. Remove from the heat. Squeeze spinach dry; add to mushrooms. Stir in artichokes, bread cubes, 1 cup of cheese, pimientos, eggs and garlic powder; stir well.
  3. Spoon into the prepared pie plate. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 5-10 minutes longer or until the cheese is melted. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.

I'm an idiot. I baked this in a pie shell because apparently I thought you were supposed to? Yeah. Oops. Guess that wasn't necessary.



  1. You talked me into this... making it for myself tonight since Paul's working late!

  2. Thanks, my friend! I'm open to any other delicious meatless suggestion you have, as well :)
