  • 20 oz frozen spinach
  • 1 shallot , diced
  • 2 garlic cloves , minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup cashew cream
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened vegan yogurt*
  • 1 teaspoon miso paste
  • Generous pinch of salt and pepper


  • Thaw the spinach and press out any excess liquid.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the garlic and shallot and saute until fragrant, about 3 minutes.
  • Once the garlic and shallots are cooked, add the spinach and saute until the spinach is warm. Stir in the remaining ingredients and continue to cook until the miso is fully dissolved.
  • Season with salt and pepper, taste and adjust your seasonings if needed. Serve warm or allow to cool completely and reheat before serving.



* I like unsweetened coconut yogurt best for this recipe. If you can't find an unsweetened yogurt, add vegan sour cream, vegan cream cheese or additional cashew cream + 1 tablespoon of lemon juice.
