For making creamy sauces, I just love cashews.
These are super creamy when cooking and taste neutral, so you can play with the spices, without having a taste. It is ideal for this vegan creamed spinach.
It works best if you soak the cashews in hot water before blending them in a blender.
Without additives or flavor enhancers
With this vegan cream spinach you get a whole food plant-based recipe that works without any flavor enhancers or additives. Have you heard of whole food plant-based diet already?
If not, this diet is about eating vegan (plant based) and not consuming highly processed products like refined flours, oils, and others.
Instead, natural sources of fat are used (nuts, avocado, olives) or wholegrain flours.
I try to replace more and more oils in my kitchen and with this vegan cream spinach you get a healthy, oil-free and sugar-free recipe.
What do you use to get your dishes creamy?
- prepared quickly
Here is a brief overview of exactly which ingredients are contained in this vegan creamed spinach.
The exact amount can be found below in the recipe card.
Clove of garlic
If you don't want to use cashews, you can also use a sunflower seed cream.
You can also fall back on purchased vegan cream.
Please note that this does not thicken when boiling like the cashew cream and you therefore have to adjust the ratio of vegetable broth to cream.
Finely chop the onion and the garlic and braise in a little water and add the spinach.
Reduce the heat and let the spinach decay. If desired, finely chop the spinach or leave it as leaf spinach.
I roughly chop ours because my kids like it that way.
In the meantime, soak the cashews in hot water for 10 min and rinse off.
Puree the cashews with the vegetable stock in a blender. Until a creamy consistency is created.
Now add the cashew cream to the spinach and season with the remaining ingredients. Let it boil, the cream is now thickening.
We like to eat mashed potatoes and fried mushrooms with chickpeas.
It is controversial whether heated spinach should be reheated. We do it. It's up to you what you want to do.
In the refrigerator, the creamed spinach is stored in a closed container for about 3 days.
