Paleo Creamed Spinach

10-ounce bag frozen chopped spinach

1/2 – 3/4 cup your preferred milk (I used an almond/cashew blend – be careful to use original unsweetened!)

1/4 cup caramelized onions

2 Tbsp. grass fed butter

1 – 2 Tbsp. arrowroot powder (or if you don’t have it: cornstarch)

1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg

Kosher salt & black pepper

Make a slurry out of the milk and arrowroot powder like you would cornstarch & milk. Chop the onions.

In a large pan over medium heat, bring the slurry to simmer. Whisk in the butter. When the mixture is thickened a bit, add the Spinach and onions. Add the nutmeg and hit with a big pinch salt + a few cracks pepper.

Sautée, stirring frequently, until the spinach is warmed through and creamy but not soupy.
