While the title of this dish grabs me, it might not be everyone's cup of tea. However, once cooked, the flavours of the rosemary and salt mix wonderfully with the spinach to make a tasty, succulent loaf.



Cutting spinach loaf, spinach bread slices


This recipe is adapted from Lee at Supercharged's recipe for spinach bread. Here, the mixture makes more of a compact loaf rather than straight up bread slices.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 10 - 12 slices

Ingredients
5 250g packets frozen spinach, defrosted
Handful fresh rosemary
1 tsp rock salt
2 eggs
1 clove of garlic

Method
Preheat the oven to 200°C.
Drain the spinach. I did this by pressing the spinach with a fork into a colander over a bowl.



Spinach loaf, rosemary and salt


Finely chop the rosemary and garlic. Crack the eggs into a small bowl and beat with a fork.
In a large bowl, mix together the spinach, eggs, rosemary, garlic and salt.
