Spinach bites that are allergen-friendly for my little guys. Flour keeps them from sticking and gives them a great crust on the outside. Baking dries up the spinach filling and prevents it from being too gooey.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl. Allow to cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes.

  • Run 1/2 cup spinach through a juicer according to manufacturer's instructions; add to cooled potatoes and mash until smooth.

  • Pulse remaining spinach in a food processor until finely chopped. Add to mashed potatoes.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Let cool slightly, about 10 minutes. Stir into mashed potatoes.

  • Mix water and flaxseed meal together in a small bowl; let sit until thickened, about 5 minutes. Add to mashed potatoes with baking powder and salt; mix to combine. Form into patties. Dust both sides of patties generously with flour.

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook patties in batches until a pale crust forms, about 3 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining 1 tablespoon oil and patties. Transfer pan-fried patties to baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and cooked through, about 10 minutes.

We like Dr Praegers spinach bites and i've always wanted to make them myself. This is a good recipe to use. I did skip a step and used some leftover mashed potatoes but otherwise made pretty much as written. They turned out great! We don't need them to be vegan so dip them in ranch to serve. Read More
