Fantabulous Creamed Spinach
CarbsPerServing:6.5g tot – 3.25g fiber = 3.25g digestible carbs
1 package (10 oz) frozen chopped spinach, thawed
1 cup chopped mushrooms
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp. heavy cream
2 Tbsp. cream cheese
2 Tbsp. mayonnaise
1 tsp. Thicken/Thin not StarchVege Sal (or Salt) & Pepper
Optional: 2 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
How to Prepare:
Saute onion in butter until transluscent in a medium skillet. Add mushrooms and saute until both onions and mushrooms are soft and cooked.
Add in thawed chopped spinach and mix well with mushrooms and onions.
Add cream, cream cheese, and mayo. Stir in until everything is melted and/or incorporated. Add salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle Thicken/Thin not Starch over entire pan and stir in until the liquids thicken. (Optional: sprinkle 2 slices of crumbled bacon over everything.) Serve hot.
Notes:The Thicken/Thin Not Starch is optional, but it makes things really nice and creamy. Guar/Xanthan gum could also be used for this (although I do not know what amount).
If you don’t use Thicken/Thin, it won’t change the digestible carbs because it is all fiber. If you add bacon, it adds a bit more protein and fat, but no carbs.
