Having a creamy cheesy side dish to a steak nails it for me. While I did think this needed some added red pepper flakes and I ate it up. Not all diets need to be bland!
Steakhouse Keto Creamed Spinach
(Adapted from Keto Cooking Wins)
1 pound baby spinach washed well
3/4 cups heavy cream
1 cup Parmesan cheese grated
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tbsp dried onion flakes
salt and pepper to taste
Wash the baby spinach and while it is still wet, put it in a large skillet.
Cook the spinach over medium heat, tossing well, until wilted and tender. About 5-6 minutes.
Transfer the spinach to a strainer and let it drip and cool to the touch. When the spinach is cool enough to handle, squeeze it dry between your very clean hands. Just remove most of the water, it doesn’t have to be totally dry.
Return the spinach to the skillet or put it in a bowl large enough for mixing. Add the cream, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and onion flakes. Mix well. Season with salt and pepper.
Transfer the spinach to an oven-safe dish and top it with a sprinkle of cheese (options), then bake at 375-F until it is hot and bubbly and lightly brown on top, about 5-10 minute depending on the size of the dish.
