Low Carb Spinach and Eggs (Beeah ooh Spanakh)
Low carb spinach and eggs, or “Beeah ooh Spanakh” (Eggs and Spinach) is one of my favorite low-carb breakfast dishes. It’s very simple to prepare, yet amazingly delicious! The good news is, you don’t have to be on a low-carb diet to enjoy it. There are a variety of ways of preparing this dish, including the addition of carbs, if you are not on a low carb diet. Whichever way you decide to serve it, it’s guaranteed to be a hit!
Spinach and Eggs Recipe
Spinach and eggs wasn’t something I grew up eating. You could say I wasn’t a fan of spinach back then. That was the extent of my pickiness as an eater. This was one of those recipes that mom only prepared for my dad, and my brother, Joe. It wasn’t until I started a low carb diet, and needed some variety in my breakfast recipes, that I remembered this dish. It’s quite reminiscent of the Greek recipe, spanakopita, but without the fillo/phyllo dough. I supposed this recipe could be called “low carb spanikopita.” Luckily, with so much going for this recipe, you’ll never miss the fillo dough!
Adding the Carbs Back In
If you are one of those lucky people who doesn’t have to watch their carbs, I hate you. Just kidding, but I am a bit envious. You, my friend, can get a little extravagant when preparing this dish. Why not serve this spinach and eggs recipe nestled in puff pastry shells? Don’t worry, it’s not a complicated process; and definitely earlier than preparing spanikopita. Just bake the puff pastry according to the package directions, then stuff with the cooked spinach and eggs mixture. Your guests will think you spent hours preparing it. You and I will know otherwise, and your secret is safe with me!
