Cheesey Greens Casserole

This a great dish for the puree diet phase. For an extra creamy version, puree the cottage cheese before adding it to the other ingredients.

2 cups frozen chopped greens (turnip, spinach, or 1 cup of each)
2 cups (about 8 ounces) reduced-fat cheddar cheese, cubed
1 16-ounce container reduced-fat (1%) cottage cheese
3 cups egg substitute
¼ cup flour

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a casserole dish with cooking spray.

Drain the greens and pat any excess moisture off with paper towels. Combine the greens with the rest of the ingredients and stir until well mixed. Pour the mixture into the prepared casserole dish.

Bake for 35 minutes or until lightly browned and set (mixture doesn’t jiggle).
