Cheesy Spinach

We LOVE Spinach here & we use it in a lot of dishes! It’s a Wonderful source of vitamins K & A, manganese, folate, magnesium, iron, copper, vitamins B 2 & 6, vitamins E & C, calcium & potassium, as well as many other benefits, plus it’s just delicious! Here is a very simple & tasty recipe if you just want to amp up your spinach dish!
"Cheesy" spinach made with nutritional yeast
Ingredients:

10 oz. of frozen chopped spinach

1/2 cup of Bragg’s nutritional yeast (Bragg’s is the Best we’ve tried)

1/2 tsp garlic salt

1/4 tsp ground black pepper

1/4 tsp onion powder

1/4 cup soy or almond milk (unsweetened)

1 TBSP Earth Balance butter

Directions:

  1. Boil spinach in water until all the water has dissipated & spinach is cooked through.
  2. Turn off heat & place to side.
  3. Place in all other ingredients, ending with the wet ingredients, mix together. Add more soy milk as needed, if too dry. Heat on low until no longer watery.

*Around the Holidays, I like to up the ante & place in oven on 350°F for approximately 10 minutes or so with a G-free Ritz-like cracker & melted butter mixed together & spread over the spinach dish. When it’s toasty & browned, I take it out of the oven & serve. A delicious & healthy side dish for the Holidays!!
