Cheese & Spinach Puffs

Cheese and Spinach Puffs
serves 6


150g/5oz cooked spinach, chopped
175g/6oz cottage cheese
1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
2 egg whites
25g/1oz Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
salt and freshly ground black pepper

• Preheat the oven to 220°C/425°F/Gas mark 7, and lightly oil six individual ramekins.
• In a small bowl, mix together the spinach and cottage cheese. Sprinkle in the nutmeg, and season with salt and pepper. Stir through.
• Whisk the egg whites in a separate bowl until stiff enough to hold soft peaks. Fold the egg whites evenly into the spinach mixture using a large metal spoon, then spoon the mixture into the prepared ramekins. Smooth the tops using the back of the spoon.
• Sprinkle with the Parmesan, and place the ramekins on a baking tray. Bake for 15–20 minutes until well risen. Serve immediately.
