Vegan Épinards Gratinées au Fromage

[Vegan Spinach Gratinéed with Cheese]

The grocery store had the Earthbound Organic Spinach on sale again...not for 99¢ but for 79¢...(which is amazing as it's usually $3.79)...so we're having spinach again...and we're likely to have it again and again as I bought three of the big plastic boxes...(I know there's a lot of waste involved there...it is recyclable though)...

...this recipe was really easy...and I'm quite the pro now with the PURÉE D'ÉPINARDS SIMPLE...which you'll need to make first...

...mix some of the cheese in with the spinach...

...mix the rest of the cheese with some breadcrumbs and sprinkle on top...you're supposed to heap up the spinach for some reason...

...then bake for about 30 minutes in the upper portion of the oven and brown the breadcrumbs lightly...

...that's it...and even Scout likes spinach with cheese and breadcrumbs topping it...

...using one entire plastic box of spinach only makes this small amount...just enough for 3 people...of course at that price you could use more than one bin...

Substitutions:
Earth Balance for Butter from the Epinards Simple and also to butter the dish for baking here
Vegan Parmesan for the Swiss
