I thought to prepare one of the dishes that I love eating for breakfast, but in savory version. This recipe is very simple and quick to make, it can be made with many ingredients and dressing, so I love to prepare it often and in different ways.
Today, for example, I have chosen to use spinach: a food with laxative and anti-inflammatory properties, which is very good for the heart and strengthens the immune system. Many people do not like spinach, but if you prepare them in this way they reach a perfect flavour and consistency. I added some leeks and green olives, which make the batter super tasty!
They are always perfect for a light lunch and calm down your hunger, and, why not, even for breakfast! Read More
