Home Food & Fitness Daily Bite : Guilt-Free Creamed Spinach

Daily Bite [Make]: Guilt-Free Creamed Spinach


Creamed Spinach Feature

Happy Monday! It’s National Eat Your Vegetables Day and we here at BSW are celebrating in a way that would make Popeye proud – with spinach. Creamed spinach is a classic veggie dish that normally makes its rich, gooey presence known around the holidays, but we found a lightened up recipe from Food52 that uses Greek yogurt and absolutely no cream or butter!

Spinach is packed with healthy goodness like calcium, vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin K, and iron. Serve this light and tasty version with some gnocchi tonight for a quick and delicious vegetarian dinner or as a side at your next summer BBQ. Here’s what you’ll need:

Makes about 2 servings

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 red chili or jalapeno, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, diced
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 1/2 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 12 ounces fresh spinach
  • 1/2 teaspoon flour
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt

Check out the full recipe and instructions on Food52!

Asia just finished her sophomore year at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, where she is majoring in Public Health Studies with a minor in Entrepreneurship and Management. From food trucks to juice cleanses, she absolutely loves everything having to do with food, but especially how it is such an important element of everyday health and wellness. Asia also loves staying active. She ran her first half marathon this spring, and has recently become hooked on spinning.
