How to make vegan creamed spinach
This flavorful vegan creamed spinach is so yummy, you won’t believe it’s vegan. Yes, it is possible to make a delicious, creamy, vegan creamed spinach recipe without added fat or bacon. Let's be honest, we love the taste of fat and bacon but we know it's not in the best interest of our health. So, are you willing to try something new or are your taste buds still adjusting?
This recipe is so creamy you won’t miss all the unhealthy fat. Coconut milk is good in this dish but you can use one of the other options listed. If you’re feeling experimental you could even add some spice or try a bit of curry. You could try a spin on the Indian dish, saag paneer but without the cheese they use. By adding the Indian herbs and spices you’ve kept the same great recipe but now with a wonderful new flavor profile. This is a great way to get this recipe in the rotation again, you won’t regret it.
If you're moving in the direction of eliminating animal products, good job! I know at times, it's not easy. Sometimes you struggle with the little devil sitting on your shoulder encouraging you to "go ahead and just eat it... you'll do better tomorrow."
It's not always easy, but try these alternative plant-based recipes:
- Vegan Green Bean Casserole
- Scalloped Potato and Cabbage Casserole
- Roasted Curried Cauliflower with Peas
- Pressure Cooker Pinto Beans
- Mashed Cauliflower with Gravy
I believe that one of the secrets to maintaining a diet you love (not really a diet, but a lifestyle of eating) is having foods that you love. So, let's add this to your list of recipes that make the cut and also, make you healthier. Feel guiltless eating this creamed spinach and make it a tradition to years to come!
