Here is a delicious vegan creamed spinach recipe. Nothing compares to eating raw greens, but there are qualities to cooked greens that are very healthful and that wouldn’t be obtained by eating them raw. Sometimes I just get a craving for creamed anything, and this way I can get a ton of green nutrition in one “creamy” serving! This vegan creamed spinach makes a great side dish for any occasion. Enjoy!
1 tablespoon cornstarch plus 1 tablespoon water
2 tablespoons vegan margarine, such as Earth Balance
2 medium shallots
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup unsweetened liquid nondairy creamer or soy milk (let us know if you try another alternative milk, how it turns out)
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Black pepper and salt to taste
1 – 1.5 pounds fresh spinach, rinsed and chopped
In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and water with a fork until smooth. Set aside.
In a large saute pan, melt the margarine over medium heat. Add the shallots and garlic and cook until shallots are translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the cornstarch mixture and cook, stirring constantly, for one minute. Add the nondairy creamer or soy milk, nutritional yeast, nutmeg, sald and pepper. Raise heat to high and cook, stirring constantly until the mixture is reduced by half, about 2 minutes.
Add the spinach, stir, and cook until tender, about 5 minutes.
