As requested by a friend, here is the recipe my parents taught me for the ever-popular and delicious holiday treat: spinach balls.  This is the first recipe posted on this blog and, appropriately, it's an easy favorite.


1 bag frozen chopped spinach (thawed)      
1 box stuffing mix *
2 eggs *
1 medium onion (diced)
1 cup shredded cheese *

* Vegan-friendly alternatives: vegetarian stuffing mix, an egg substitute like Ener-G or silken tofu, Daiya or Follow Your Heart vegan cheese.  Although I can't say how these vegan spinach balls compare with the standard quite yet, I'll be making them for this friend's holiday party in 2 weeks... so I'll let you know once we try them!

To Make:

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix spinach, stuffing, onion in a large bowl.
Add cheese, eggs - continue stirring - mixture should clump together.
Form small balls (1" - 1.5" in diameter) with your hands.
Line spinach balls on a greased or non-stick baking sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes or until bottoms of spinach balls start to brown.
Serve hot and enjoy with good friends.
