Ingredients

  • 1 (6 ounce) bag baby spinach
  • 2 large eggs

  • 11 Bake about 20 minutes or until firm.
  • 12 Remove the torta from the oven and increase the heat to broil.
  • 13 Broil 5 inches from heat until just browned on the top, about 1 minute.
  • 14 Let stand 5 minutes before inverting the torta on a cutting board and slicing into 4 wedges.
