    Spinach Patties

    1 lb spinach leaves, rinsed
    2 oz cream cheese
    1 tablespoon freshly grated Parmesan cheese
    2 eggs
    2 oz fresh white bread crumbs
    vegetable oil, for frying

    Walnut Sauce:

    2 oz walnuts, toasted
    1/2 oz fresh white bread crumbs
    1 tablespoon walnut oil
    3 fl oz milk
    1 teaspoon lemon juice
    1 teaspoon chopped fresh tarragon
    tarragon sprig, to garnish

    In a large saucepan, cook spinach with only the water that clings to
    leaves 2 to 3 minutes or until just wilted. Cool slightly, then drain
    and squeeze out excess liquid. Set aside to cool completely. Meanwhile,
    prepare sauce: In a food processor or blender, process walnuts until
    finely ground. Add bread crumbs and oil and, with motor running,
    gradually add milk through the food tube, processing until smooth. Stir
    in remaining sauce ingredients and season to taste.

    Finely chop cooled spinach. Beat in cream cheese and Parmesan cheese, 1
    egg, salt and pepper until mixed. In a small bowl, beat remaining egg.
    Form spinach mixture into 8 patties. Dip first into beaten egg, then
    into bread crumbs until well coated. In a small skillet, heat oil.
    Add patties; cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side until golden-brown. Drain
    well on paper towels. Serve hot, warm or cold with walnut sauce.
    Garnish with tarragon.
    Makes 4 servings.

    Sephardic Spinach Patties (Keftes De Espinaca)

    Yield: 16 servings

    3 tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil
    1 large onion - chopped
    2 cloves minced garlic - up to 3
    2 pounds chopped fresh spinach or frozen spinach - thawed and squeezed
    1 cup breadcrumbs or matzo meal
    4 large eggs - lightly beaten
    Salt and pepper
    1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg or 1/2 tsp cayenne - optional
    Vegetable oil for frying
    1 lemon - cut in wedges

    Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and
    saute until soft and translucent, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and
    add spinach, breadcrumbs, eggs, salt and pepper to taste and nutmeg, if
    using. Stir, then remove to a mixing bowl.
    Heat about 1/4- inch oil in a large skillet. Shape spinach mixture into
    3-inch patties about 1 inch wide and 1/2 inch thick. In batches, fry
    patties, turning once, until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper
    towels. Serve with lemon wedges. Yields 16 patties.

    Note: Originally cultivated in Persia in the 6th century, spinach was
    first introduced to Europe by way of the Moors about 1000 years ago. It
    quickly became a Sephardic favourite.
