Ingredients

  • 6 cups spinach , washed and roughly chopped
  • 0.75 oz baby bella mushrooms , quartered
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced (half amount to saute mushrooms, half amount to saute spinach)
  • 2/3 cup coconut cream (use ½ cup for less coconut flavor)
  • 1 tbsp chicken or vegetable stock
  • Olive oil, ghee, salt, black pepper

Instructions

  • Saute mushrooms: Heat 1 tbsp ghee or olive oil in a large saute pan (or dutch oven). When hot, lower the heat to medium. Add half amount of chopped garlic, season with a small pinch of salt. Saute until fragrant (about 5-10 seconds). Add quartered mushrooms. Season with another pinch of salt. Keep sauteing until the mushrooms turn slightly softer. Add 1 tbsp stock to the saute pan to help stir-frying. Set aside. If there’s any liquid left in the saute pan, dump the water.
  • Saute spinach: Heat 1 ½ to 2 tbsp ghee in a large saute pan (or dutch oven). When hot, lower the heat to medium. Add the rest amount of chopped garlic, season with a small pinch of salt. Saute until fragrant (about 5-10 seconds). Add spinach. Keep sauteing until the spinach turns slightly wilted but not mushy. Season with another pinch of salt. Set aside. Discard the liquid in the saute pan. 
  • Warm up the sauce: In a medium size saucepan, uncovered, gently warm up cup coconut cream with 1 tbsp ghee. Stir occasionally until thickened. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 
  • Serve: Combine mushrooms and spinach. Pour the sauce over. Give it a gentle toss. Optional - serve with toasted almond slices or lemon zest if desired.
