Good Things Come In Small Packages

spinach and artichoke mini kugels

Spinach and artichoke taste great together and can be kept in the freezer for a quick vegetable side dish or fun appetizer you can prepare in minutes.  A few months ago, I developed an Inside Out Spinach and Artichoke Dip that my kids and brunch guests devoured.  This time, I was looking to create something pareve and miniature.  Isn't everything better when it’s smaller? I’m not just saying that because I’m five feet tall!  From cocktail party appetizers to pre-game bites, each Spinach and Artichoke Mini Kugel has only 30 calories and is filled with lots of nutrients, without sacrificing flavor or taste. Spinach is on every list of superfoods for its high vitamin content.  Spinach is packed with fiber, vitamin A, vitamin K and tons of antioxidants.  Artichokes are high in vitamin C and are also rich in fiber and antioxidants.  This recipe is low in calories, but high in nutrients.  Does it get any better?

When we decided to do a mini food link up for January, I thought of party hors d'oeuvres.  Something that could be the star of a Shabbat kiddush, Super Bowl party or even the upcoming Purim holiday.  It’s a challenge to find healthy foods at these events, I’m usually stuck grazing at the vegetable platter, if there’s even one to be found .  The Spinach and Artichoke Mini Kugel is a healthy party food you and your guests will love.
