Spinach cups

This is a super easy recipe you can do with the little ones. My daughters love to “help” me while i cook. And I have found that they think the food is by far more special to them if they took part in its preparation. We got a kids cooking set from Ikea some time ago, and we keep the pieces with the rest of cooking utensiles, the real ones. They love to beat the eggs for their omelettes. It was a bit messy at the begining, but now my 4 year old is a great helper when cooking omelettes and the 2 year old is on her way. In the pictures you can see how easy is to prepare a spinach omelette with a bit of cheese.


  • 1/2 pound of spinach.
  • 5 eggs.
  • 1/2 cup of Cheese. •Salt.


  • Boil the spinach and sauted them with 1 Tbs of olive oil. Spinach should be dry.
  • Beat the eggs and mix them with the spinach. Add the cheese.
  • Pour the mix in colorful cupcakes baking cups for extra fun.
  • Heat oven to 350F and bake the spinach cups for 15 min or until a toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean

Enjoy this hearty treat!


About amaliabarragan

I am the mother of two daughters who left Spain longer than 2 years ago to live in San Francisco Bay Area, where the family was relocated. I am now living through that adaptation period which is the motherhood. Trying to keep in mind the essentials of my life before it and pass them on my little daughters. Those important things are outdoor activities, nature, biking, friends, traveling around the world, curiosity about everything, art, cooking. I am definitely enjoying this time with tons of activities and by sharing them I would love to help others.
