The Allure of Creamed Spinach

Creamed spinach combines the nutritional benefits of spinach with the indulgent taste and texture of cream and cheese. The result is a side dish that feels luxurious and tastes incredible, all while fitting perfectly into a low-carb, high-fat ketogenic diet.

Ingredients

For this recipe, you’ll need extra virgin olive oil, baby spinach, heavy cream, cream cheese, garlic powder, and sea salt and black pepper to taste. These ingredients come together to create a rich and flavorful dish that pairs well with almost any main course.

  • 2 T. extra virgin olive oil
  • 10 c. baby spinach chopped
  • 1/4 c. heavy cream
  • 4 oz. cream cheese softened and cut into small chunks
  • 1/2 t. garlic powder
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste

The Process

To start, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Gradually add the spinach and sauté it just until it wilts. Be careful not to overcook the spinach; you want it to retain its vibrant green color and some of its crunch.

Next, add the heavy cream, cream cheese, and garlic powder to the skillet. Season with salt and black pepper to your liking, and stir everything together. Continue to heat the mixture, stirring frequently, until the cream cheese melts completely and the mixture is heated through.

And just like that, your Easy Creamed Spinach is ready to serve! It’s best enjoyed hot, paired with your choice of main dishes.

The Verdict

The Easy Creamed Spinach recipe proves that healthy eating doesn’t have to be boring or bland. This side dish is creamy, flavorful, and comforting, making it a perfect addition to your keto meal plan. So why wait? Try it today and experience the indulgent side of spinach.
