Coconut Creamed Spinach could hardly be easier!  Succulent spinach leaves braised in coconut milk with leeks and ginger, finished with a squeeze of lime.  This recipe is perfect for the shoulder seasons of summer when fresh spinach is abundant and tender.

Using coconut milk, in the place of the traditional cream sauce gives a rich, creamy hint of sweetness combining nicely with the zesty ginger and tender leeks.  We quickly braise the spinach in the warmed sauce, this keeps the spinach bright and fresh tasting. This simple dish comes together fast, and it is vegan and gluten-free!

Coconut Creamed spinach is a beautiful accompaniment to many different entrees.  Leftovers hold well for up to three days.

    1. Hi Judy, Ghee has a higher smoke point than butter and has a nuttier rich flavor.
