HEALTHY SPINACH ARTICHOKE EGG CASSEROLE
This Healthy Spinach Artichoke Egg Casserole brings all the crave-worthy flavor of my favorite dip, and it’s low-carb, keto-friendly, and gluten-free! Need dairy-free? Just use vegan parm and dairy-free mozzarella (I like VioLife brand). This yummy egg casserole is a unique alternative to your typical sausage and pepper casserole (I have a recipe for that too), and is sure to become a meal prep favorite!
Did you know? Artichokes are among the most antioxidant-rich of all vegetables, making them an excellent choice for an anti-inflammatory diet. (source)
The base of this recipe combines free range whole eggs with cage-free egg whites. Using some egg whites reduces the fat and calorie content while increasing the protein density per serving. The eggs and egg whites are beaten with Monterrey Jack cheese (can use white cheddar or dairy-free mozzarella), grated parmesan (can use vegan), minced garlic, dijon mustard, sea salt, and red pepper flakes.
If you don’t have fresh garlic, feel free to substitute half a teaspoon of garlic powder instead. Also, the red pepper flakes can be swapped for ground black or white pepper!
Now for the veggies, I went with red onion, spinach, and marinated artichoke hearts. You don’t have to use marinated hearts, but I think it adds to the spinach artichoke dip flavor! Artichokes generally have low pesticide residues so it’s not necessary to buy organic.
Also, you can use fresh or frozen spinach. If using frozen, thaw then squeeze out the excess water. I actually used fresh spinach I had thrown into the freezer to keep from going bad, so I didn’t find I needed to squeeze out any liquid.
