Keto Creamed Spinach

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp butter

  • 4 cloves of garlic (minced)

  • 10 oz. of baby spinach (chopped; about 16 cups)

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

  • 3 oz. of cream cheese (cut into small pieces)

  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning

  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

  • Parmesan cheese (optional topping)

Instructions

  1. Heat butter in a large state pan or wok over medium heat. Add minced garlic and cute until fragrant.

  2. Add spinach. Saute for 2-4 minutes, until wilted. If the pan is too full to stir at first, cover it for a minute or two, which will let the spinach at the bottom wilt. Then you can start to stir in a folding motion.

  3. Add heavy cream, cream cheese, sea salt, black pepper, and Italian seasoning. Stir constantly until the cream cheese melts, then cook a few minutes until thickened.

  4. If desired, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese for serving.
