Spinach Flatbreads

Instead of the same old side of garlic bread, serve up wedges of toasty, mouthwatering Spinach Flatbreads from Kristen Westbrook in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. “I always seemed to have spinach that would spoil before I could use it all,” she explains. “So I started making these delicious and quick flatbreads. They’re low-fat, work well with almost any vegetable I have on hand and can double as a light lunch.”—Kristen Westbrook, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

    I made this today for lunch, and it is delicious! I adapted the amounts, since I was topping just one whole grain naan rather than 4 pitas. I used all the onion called for, probably 2 cups of spinach that I chopped a bit (regular rather than baby spinach, since I need the potassium), and 1/4 c. of mozzarella. I also only used a bit of olive oil on the bread. Such a quick lunch, and so great! I'll be making this a lot! Oh, and by the way, leftovers taste great cold, right out of the fridge for a snack, too!
