I used English cucumbers but you can use regular or Persian cucumbers as well. Persian cucumbers would be best as they are less watery than regular cucumbers. You’d need about 8 Persian cucumbers and 2-3 regular cucumbers if you were going to substitute.

Here’s a little shortcut, use kitchen shears to chop fresh herbs. I started using them to chop up my son’s food into bite size pieces so that he could eat without choking. It was so easy that I started looking around the kitchen to see what else I could cut up and settled on herbs. It’s so nice to be able to just grab a bunch of dill and start cutting. I use Kitchen-Buddy kitchen shears from Amazon. They are very sharp which is perfect. The only downside is that they don’t come apart to wash and don’t go in the dishwasher. I usually only use these shears for cutting herbs so that’s not much of an issue. However, they are heavy duty and could handle much bigger jobs.

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
Cuisine: Asian
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.
  6. Add the frozen spinach to the pot and stir to combine.
  7. Cook for another 25 minutes, adding the remaining broth as necessary, to keep the mixture creamy. Keep the spinach just covered with broth, and then let the liquid cook off for the last 10 minutes.
