Spinach Bread


A fantastic paleo/primal friendly recipe to help with any of the bread cravings you still have is spinach bread.  My wife makes this every week and absolutely loves it.  Spinach bread is 100% paleo, natural and really easy to make.  A great addition to any meal as a snack or it can be used as actual bread for a sandwich.  However way you choose to eat it, I highly recommend giving spinach bread a try.  You will be pleasantly surprised.


3-4 eggs, whisked

16 ounces frozen spinach

2 tablespoons butter

1/2 cup pine nuts

2 cloves crushed garlic

Small bunch of basil (about 15 leaves)

1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)






Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Defrost spinach over low heat.  Put in a colander lined with cheese cloth or thin towel, wrap the towel around the spinach and squeeze out as much moisture as possible.

Melt butter over low heat and add pine nuts and garlic, toasting until golden brown.  Pine nuts burn easily, so keep an eye on them.  Put in a food processor with the basil and pulse a few times until the nuts are broken up but not completely smooth.  Add spinach and salt and pulse for ten seconds.  Stir in eggs.  Scrape into a buttered pie pan or 7 x 11 baking dish.  Bake 20-30 minutes, until set.  Let cool, the cut.

Eat and enjoy.
