This popover recipe is a savory one. You’ll get one popover, not a dozen. That’s okay because it’s a big popover. Perfect for brunch, lunch or even dinner, this recipe for Swiss Chard and Mushroom Popover Bake is easy to make, tasty, and gluten free. This recipe was inspired by a Cooking Light recipe.
One thing I like about this recipe is that you could add so many things to the crust. Try a variety of veggies or maybe make it sweet and fill it with apples, spices and walnuts.
The original recipe called for wheat pastry flour, but the Bob’s Red Mill Garbanzo Bean Flour I used turned this into a great gluten-free dish. Bob’s Red Mill suggests using 7/8 cup of this flour to replace 1 cup of wheat flour in baked goods, but I kept the proportions the same and it worked out great.
- 2 cups cremini mushrooms, sliced
- 1-1/2 cup Swiss chard, stems removed, leaves torn into small pieces
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/4 cup red onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
- 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, or to taste
- 1 tablespoon margarine
- 1/2 cup Bob's Red Mill Garbanzo Bean Flour
- 1/2 cup skim milk
- 2 large eggs, beaten
- 1/2 cup Provolone cheese, shredded
- Nonstick cooking spray
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F.
Add the olive oil to a large skillet over medium heat. When hot, add the onion and mushrooms and cook, stirring, until soft. Add the Swiss chard, garlic, and seasonings, and mix well for a few minutes (be careful not to burn the garlic).
Remove the mixture from the heat and cover it.
Spray an 8-inch square baking dish (you could also use a pie plate) with the nonstick cooking spray. Add the margarine and place the dish in the oven until the margarine melts, then remove it from the oven.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the garbanzo bean flour, milk and eggs.
Pour the flour mixture into the baking dish and bake for 12-14 minutes, or until it becomes puffy and lightly browns.
Spoon the Swiss chard mixture to the crust and sprinkle the Provolone cheese over the top. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until the cheese has melted.
