Vegetarian Seder Guests?: Crustless Spinach and Red Pepper Tart

April 4, 2011

Having vegetarian seder guests? Providing that they are not vegan, this might be a nice dish to put on the table. It is pareve, high protein, low fat, and low carb. Plus, it is colorful, easy to make and it can be served room temperature as well as warm.

Even though it is arguably a frittata rather than a tart (or maybe even a kugel), I call it a crustless tart because it is basically this tart, minus the crust. The method of making it is so simple, you really don’t even need a recipe. Just grease a round pan generously with olive oil and arrange cooked spinach (defrosted frozen, squeezed very, very dry) and roasted red peppers in the pan. Sprinkle over salt and pepper. Whisk some eggs and pour over the top. Poke the spinach around to mix in the eggs. Bake.

And why wouldn’t this work with other vegetables, too? Maybe eggplant, onion, and red pepper (a nice combination also in this spread), or maybe cauliflower and onion (something like this, but with just eggs and no flour, of course), or broccoli and scallion.
