Recipe for kid friendly food that celebrates veggies!

My kids love cheesy spinach bars (it is basically a crustless quiche), here is the recipe: Everything is organic, it will work fine with conventional foods. Kids will learn to love veggies if they taste good.

preheat oven to 350
1 16oz bag frozen spinach, thaw and squeeze to drain excess
1 large onion, finely minced
1 red pepper finely minced
4 cloves garlic finely minced
5 eggs beaten
1 cup milk
3T melted butter
1 cup all purpose, unbleached flour (may use 1/2 cup ap and 1/2 c whole wheat)
1t baking powder (Rumford brand)
2c shreadded cheese (cheddar works best)
1t salt
1/2 t black pepper

Mix all dry in 1 bowl, mix all wet in another. Grease 9x13 glass pan dump dry into wet and mix. Spread in pan and bake at 350 for 30 to 35 minutes.**It must be golden brown on top for it to taste good**. This is so good in the morning for breakfast, it reheats well.

You may alter the amount of garlic to your taste. Enjoy!
