Spinach Stew

This less than 10 ingredient Spinach Stew is slow cooked to perfection. The spinach, onion and spices are cooked down so that the flavors intensify and create a really delicious side dish. This recipe is allergy friendly (gluten, dairy, shellfish, nut, egg, and soy free) and suits the autoimmune protocol, paleo and vegan diets.

I realize that this Spinach Stew recipe takes a whopping 60 minutes to make but I assure you it’s worth the wait. Don’t even think about trying to shave time off of this dish because it just won’t be the same. This Spinach Stew side dish only uses 6 ingredients and slow cooks them to perfection. It’s the closest thing to an allergy friendly, AIP and Paleo creamed spinach recipe you’ll ever find.

Spinach is a great veggie and packed full of healthy stuff. I try to eat it as often as possible, because it’s important to pack on the nutrient dense foods when you are on a restricted diet. However, there are only so many times I can have sautéed spinach or a spinach salad.

When you can’t have dairy, soy or any nut milk (including coconut) it’s nice to taste something so smooth, creamy and flavorful. This recipe works because it slowly condenses the tasty onion, spinach, spices and broth. The slow cooking intensifies the flavors and makes me so freaking happy.

Recipe type: Dinner, Starter

Serves: 4-6
Ingredients
  • 2 medium Onions, roughly chopped
  • 4 Garlic Cloves
  • ¼ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • ¼ teaspoon Ground Turmeric
  • ¼ teaspoon Ground Cloves
  • 2 cups Chicken Broth, divided
  • 16 ounces Frozen Chopped Spinach, chopped
  • Salt, to taste
Instructions
  1. Puree the onion and garlic in a food processor.
  2. Add the onion mixture to a large pot on the stovetop over medium heat.
  3. Cover the pot with the lid, for about 5 minutes while stirring occasionally.
  4. Add olive oil, turmeric, cloves and 1 cup of broth to the pot and then stir to combine.
  5. Continue to cook, uncovered while stirring occasionally, for about 12-14 minutes or until onions are golden brown and the liquid has reduced. Be careful to watch it towards the end as you don’t want it to burn.

Turkey and Mushroom Lettuce Wraps

These Turkey and Mushroom Lettuce Wraps are a healthy easy one pot dinner dish. This recipe is allergy friendly (gluten, dairy, nut, egg, soy and shellfish free) and suits the autoimmune protocol (AIP) and paleo diets.

The autoimmune protocol diet (or paleo diet) can feel quite restrictive so I’m looking for different recipes that are still easy but taste great and will appeal to my whole family. This Turkey and Mushroom Lettuce Wrap recipe is a one-pot meal that is really healthy. I really don’t feel like I’m missing out when I’m eating this dish. It’s satisfying for not just myself but the rest of my non-AIP family.

I used marsala wine and ground black pepper in the recipe which are not strict AIP. If wine doesn’t agree with you then just omit it and double the fish sauce. It won’t have exactly the same flavor but it will still taste great.

I intended on only taking a week or two off while I was on vacation this month. However, it turned into an entire month off. After we returned from vacation, my son and I ended up with a flu bug and then my camera broke. Actually it didn’t break on it’s own, my son helped. Tyler is super curious and tall. I didn’t realize that he was suddenly tall enough to reach the kitchen counter. He grabbed the camera strap, pulled and the entire camera came crashing down on the floor. Luckily it missed Tyler but the camera was a goner. I’m finally back on track with my new camera.

Since I had some down time, I’ve been working on new recipes and an ecookbook. If you want more information, check out my One Week of AIP post. I also created a new ebook, AIP Snack Ideas, for people that sign up for my mailing list.
