Spinach Flatbreads Recipe

Spinach Flatbreads Recipe

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
