TOTAL TIME: 30 to 45 minutes including 15 to 20 minute bake time
- 4 cups / 120 g spinach
- 1 lb / 454 g 85% lean ground turkey

Into a large flat pan pour ½ cup of water and bring to a boil. Add spinach, cover with a tight-fitting lid. Let spinach cook for 2 minutes, remove lid and stir with a spoon, replace lid and cook until wilted -- 3 to 5 minutes. Reserve spinach and let it cool.

Using a bowl with a strainer squeeze the moisture out of the cooled spinach. Chop the spinach.
Add the chopped dry spinach to the turkey mixture and blend it in.
Spray a 9 X 13 inch glass baking dish. Portion the turkey into 6 equal portions, 1/3 cup each.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the outsides are lightly browned.
