  1. I love the idea o a spinach kugel that has no cheese. I will remember this recipe when I need hors d’oeuvre for my meat meals. I make spinach pie all the time, and sometimes minis, but always with cheese; this is a nice alternative and artichoke hearts should add an interesting flavor.

  2. so great that this is pareve, and i absolutely love artichokes! seems like it would freeze really well, too, and i’m in the mood to stock my freezer!

  3. Tamar – how much garlic?

    • I like it garlicky, so I go with two cloves, I added it in, thanks for asking.

        does the spinach need to be thawed and squeezed dry? cooked first?

        • Yes, it is best to thaw and squeeze it first. Then put into the pan to saute with the artichokes.

    I am gluten free and try to stay away from grains altogether. Is there something i could use in place of the matzo meal? or do you think i could just omit it.

    Can these be frozen and if so do they need to be defrosted before warming?

    • I haven’t tried it, but I think they would freeze well and I would defrost them first, but not sure it is a must.

  6. These came out great! Did not have one left over and made a double recipe. Real hit for everyone.

    Should the spinach/artichoke mixture taste really salty before adding in the egg and matzo meal? (will those last two balance out the saltiness once mixed?)

    regarding the spinach artichoke kugel two questions. it seems you have to defrost the spinach, but you didnt specify that. also have you tried it in one pan not minis. what would you reccomend baking time be for that

    • Yes, you have to defrost it, sorry about that. And I haven’t tried it, but I would try baking it for 40 minutes.
