Bacon Creamed Spinach

Creamed spinach is one of my favorite side dishes.  I know, probably one of the least popular, but I love it (almost as much as beets!).  Actually, I like just plain old sautéed spinach, too.  If you don’t like creamed spinach as much as I do, here is a way to dress it up a bit… add cream and bacon!  Who couldn’t love creamed spinach with some bacon in it?

Bacon Creamed Spinach

Pieces:

  1. 2 pieces bacon (I like Applegate Farms turkey bacon)
  2. 2 tbsp. chopped shallot
  3. 1 tbsp. olive oil
  4. one and one quarter cup coconut (or other dairy free) creamer
  5. 1 tbsp. gluten free flour
  6. 3 tbsp. vegan butter
  7. 2 cups frozen spinach
  8. 2 tsp. nutmeg
  9. 2 tsp. pepper
  10. 1 tsp. salt
  11. one half tsp. cinnamon

 

Process:

  1. Chop the shallot and sauté in a pan with the olive oil.  Saute just for a minute or two.
  2. Chop the bacon into smaller than bite sized pieces.
  3. Saute the bacon with the shallot.  Add the vegan butter.  Saute until the bacon gets nice and crispy.
  4. Add the creamer and gluten free flour and stir for a couple of minutes to thicken.
  5. Add the spinach and continue to stir.
  6. Add the salt, pepper, nutmeg, and cinnamon.
  7. Stir until spinach is heated through.
  8. Serve hot!
