Vegan Creamed Spinach
November 9, 2015 11 Comments
I try to keep my guest list for Thanksgiving “vegan free” but that doesn’t work for everyone.
I’m just kidding! I love vegans – one of my best friends is a vegan. If they want to bring over the Tofurkey – then they can spend Thanksgiving at my house which is a bird, butter, and pie festival.
This is a very fast way to dress up spinach and with the ability to buy a bag of pre-washed spinach – a snap to make. I couldn’t find fresh spinach to wash at my supermarket and ended up buying a bag – so easy!
This does not taste like regular cow’s milk cream, but has a lovely flavor all its own. I love that is has 141% of your vitamin A, 70% of your vitamin C, and 7% of your daily value of iron.
You gotta try this!
Do you have vegans come over on Thanksgiving? What do you feed them?
