This recipe is decadent tasting yet healthy. Makes a perfect side to some bacon-wrapped chicken.
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.
