Paleo Creamed Spinach

Bored lately.Sick of not using cream or cheese.Needed something creamy, yet not.Alas, creamless creamed spinach .This was surprisingly good, delicious even.I like coconut,sweetened, in food as a cream I wasn't so sure.I didn't want something sweet(ish) in something I intended to be savory.What I did was reduce the coconut milk down to a third,so it was almost condensed to add just a touch of creamy texture.

                                                    1 can coconut milk
                                                    2 bunches fresh organic spinach
                                                     sliced mushrooms
                                                     1 shallot
                                                      loads of garlic

Sautee mushrooms in a dash of olive oil, after mushrooms are carmelized add the shallots and garlic and cook until soft.Throw the spinach on top of that,and cook until slightly wilted,season, finish with 2 tablespoons coconut milk.


  1. I have to try this one for sure....

  2. I am allergic to coconut....can it be substituted with anything?

  3. Yes,real cream...and while your at it...put some butter in will be insane!

  4. yum! trying to make it tonight (sans coconut milk b/c i don't have it) with scallops. thx!!
