This is just a simple recipe for those days when you need something creamy and delicious. This is also a perfect appetizer or snack for almost any get-together.
If you like crunch, add water chestnuts. If you like artichoke, add artichoke hearts. If you like simple tastiness, just eat this as-is. But I'm warning you, this is highly addictive. I had omni friends over this evening, and they LOVED this. And it's vegan. Almost secretly, it seems. It made me super happy.
- 1 box frozen spinach, thawed and drained
- 1/2 yellow onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tbs canola oil
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tub Tofutti cream cheese
- seasoning salt to taste
Thaw, press and squeeze the spinach. Set aside.
In a small pot, add the oil and heat on medium heat until hot. Add in the diced onion and the minced garlic and cook until transparent.
Add spinach and salt to pot and cook until heated through. Add in cream cheese and cook, stirring constantly, until melty. Reduce heat to low and continue cooking for about 3 minutes. Season with your seasoning salt of choice to taste.
Serve in a mini crockpot, or immediately, with tortilla chips, toast points, or even celery sticks.
