Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat your largest skillet over medium low heat. Add about a tablespoon of water or a light drizzle of olive oil and saute the spinach with a pinch of sea salt until wilted. Toss often and as soon as the spinach releases its water transfer to a colander to drain well.
  • Meanwhile in a medium sauce pan whisk together the cashew milk, flour, nutritional yeast, onion and garlic powders until combined. Season with the sea salt and bring to a simmer whisking continuously until thick and creamy, approximately 5 minutes or so.
  • Remove the cream sauce from heat and gently fold in the sautéed spinach. Taste and adjust seasonings with more sea salt. Add a little pinch of freshly grated nutmeg to taste (you can totally skip this step but believe or not, nutmeg and spinach have a thing going on, use it).
