This is a very good dish for an on the fly, super tasty side item for your lunch or dinner. The is low carb and high fat, perfect for keto diets and low carb restrictions. The proportions would make for 4 good meals and taste good regardless of being pre-made (Typically creamed spinach would not be good leftover...). I use the Trader Joes frozen spinach as it maintains consistency and is very cost effective. This dish does not require anything other than a microwave, so feel free to utilize this as an office ready dish that can be made virtually anywhere a fridge and microwave exist.

I usually pair this dish with a couple of fully cooked chicken sausages and you are good to go!

Creamed Spinach


1De-thaw spinach (Usually 3 minutes in the microwave) and place into a large bowl

2Pre-melt butter and add alongside heavy cream to the spinach

3Crumble muenster cheese slices into small pieces and add

4Add remaining ingredients and stir together

5Split spinach into 4 containers. Microwave your current meal for 1-3 minutes to melt cheese and enjoy!

For even more calories and a healthy kicker to the recipe, include a half an avocado! Cut one up and mix with it and it is quite delicious. I didn't include this in the recipe, as once avocados are cut open they brown fast and don't make for a great meal prep sadly.

*Note - I dont normally condone the use of a microwave and realize it is probably a bit unusual to post a microwave based Recipe. I just know that we don't always have time or ovens at our disposal. Enjoy!
