Vegan Creamed Spinach

Author Veg Life Staff


  • 2 bags of pre-washed fresh Spinach
  • 16 oz . bag of Frozen Spinach defrosted and liquid squeezed out
  • 1 Tbl Vegan Margarine or Coconut Oil
  • 2 Tbl All Purpose Flour
  • 3/4 C Vegetable Broth
  • 1/3 C Vegan Sour Cream or Cashew Cream or even Vegan Cream Cheese
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Pinch of fresh Nutmeg if desired


  • Defrost and squeeze all of the liquid from the frozen spinach.
  • In a large saute pan, add the fresh spinach without any liquid and continually toss until it cooks down.
  • Remove and set aside.
  • Wipe the pan clean and add the vegan margarine (or coconut oil, if you prefer) and once melted, add the flour. Stirring constantly, cook for 2-3 minutes. This creates a roux and helps cook out that flour taste.
  • Whisk in the vegetable broth until smooth. It will appear somewhat thick. Bring to a boil and immediately reduce to a simmer.
  • Add all of the spinach. Stir to combine.
  • Add the vegan sour cream and season with salt and pepper.
  • Lastly, add the fresh nutmeg.
  • Serve hot.
