Meatless Monday: Coconut Creamed Spinach {Vegan, Gluten Free, Paleo}


Coconut Creamed Spinach {Gluten Free, Vegan, Paleo}

 

This past weekend I was Arizona at the DVRT Master Trainer’s Summit learning and connecting with the best of the best trainers in the WORLD.  I could not have had a better time and walked away with so many ideas that I cannot wait to put into action.  

I literally love everything about the Summit and while the Arizona heat (it was 97 DEGREES!) was a nice change from the cool weather, I have to say that I really, really missed the cool fall weather at home in New York and all the warm, yummy comfort food. 

As I sit here in the airport in Phoenix, the one thing I am craving more than anything is this dairy free cream of spinach dish.  I realize this is a repeat but it’s so comforting and delicious that it’s worth sharing again though I am kinda craving it with kale this time! 

The last time I made this it turned out FANTASTIC even if it is a far cry from traditional creamed spinach.  Not only is is healthier since it’s made with coconut cream, but it also includes some meaty mushrooms and a few mild piquante peppers for a bit of spicy sweetness.
