Cooking Light AUGUST 2005

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 gratin)

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped Walla Walla or other sweet onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (10-ounce) bag fresh spinach, coarsely chopped
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup 1% low-fat milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Dash of ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Asiago cheese
  • 1 (1-ounce) slice white bread, torn into pieces
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Preparation

Preheat broiler.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add butter; swirl pan until butter melts. Add onion and garlic; sauté 3 minutes or until tender. Add half of the spinach; cook 2 minutes or until spinach begins to wilt, stirring frequently. Add remaining half of spinach; cook 2 minutes or until spinach wilts, stirring frequently. Remove pan from heat.

Place flour in a small bowl; gradually add milk, stirring with a whisk. Stir flour mixture into spinach mixture; add salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Cook over medium-high heat 3 minutes or until thick and bubbly, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add cheese, stirring until cheese melts. Divide mixture evenly among 4 (4-ounce) ramekins or custard cups coated with cooking spray. Place ramekins on a baking sheet.

Place bread in a food processor; process until coarse crumbs measure 1/2 cup. Add parsley; pulse 3 times or until combined. Sprinkle about 2 tablespoons breadcrumb mixture over each serving. Broil 1 minute or until browned.
