Golden Goat’s Cheese Tomatoes with Spinach


Such a lovely, easy dish ten minutes to prepare and fifteen minutes to cook - then sit down and enjoy.

Ingredients:
Serves Two
250g spinach
4 slices prosciutto
3 large tomatoes, halved
1 heaped tbsp. crème fraîche

50g goat's cheese (from a log with rind), chopped

Method:
1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Put the spinach in a colander, pour over a kettle of boiling water until the spinach wilts, then drain and squeeze out as much liquid as you can (you might need to do this in two batches). Put the spinach in the bottom of a gratin or baking dish, season, then sprinkle with nutmeg.
2. Drape the prosciutto over and around the spinach, then sit the tomato halves on top, cut-side up. Dot the crème fraîche over the whole dish, scatter with the goat’s cheese, then season with more pepper. Bake for 10-15 mins until the cheese is melting into the crème fraîche and the edges are starting to bubble. Scoop out of the dish and serve with low carb bread and a green salad.

Hi There, That looks so good and so healthy!!!! Thanks for the recipe.

Hubby and I started the Keto Diet this past week.... It's different from any diet I have ever been on....We're doing well so far ---and getting enough healthy fat, few carbs (Just those in veggies which we need), and no sugar.... The only thing I need is more protein... SO--I need to work on that...

I'll go through some of your posts and pick out some new things to try.... (We're already using some of your ideas.)

Hugs,
Betsy

A wonderful recipe. Thank you!

Sami said...

Not fond of prosciuto, but I suppose I could substitute that with sliced ham or maybe even canned tuna. Will give it a try as I love anything with cheese :) Thanks Jan.

This looks like a beautiful dish, easy to prepare and good to eat. It will be especially delicious in the summer with local tomatoes. I avoid purchasing the cardboard tasting variety currently available.

thank you for the recipe dear Jan as it is new to me

while cooking spinach though we used the method of squeezing to draw chemical out of it as much as possible
