Spinach Croquettes



  • 500 grams frozen spinach,
  • 3 tablespoons flour,
  • 1 onion,
  • 2 cloves garlic,
  • 4ozs. Parmesan or mature Cheddar,
  • a little grated nutmeg,
  • about a pint of Milk,
  • salt and pepper.


Fry onion and garlic in butter, add the flour and stir then add the boiled or microwaved spinach, cheese, nutmeg and mix well.

Start adding the milk and stir continuously until mixture forms a ball in the centre of frying pan. It might take a while and If this doesn’t happen make a paste with a tablespoon flour and a little milk and add to the mixture until the desired consistency is achieved.

Allow to cool. I find it useful to put the mixture in the fridge once it has cooled down for a few hours or even overnight as then it will be easier to form the croquette shapes. Once this is done bind with seasoned egg and breadcrumbs and ready to fry.
