Food Friday: Gluten Free Vegan Spinach Florentine

(photo credit HERE )


12 ounces of pasta ( I use Gluten free brown rice pasta )
1 1/2 Tablespoons of olive oil
2 cloves of minced garlic
8 cups of fresh spinach (or 10 ounces of frozen and thawed)
1 cup of So Delicious unsweetened coconut milk (green container)
1/4 cup and 2 Tablespoons of nutritional yeast
3 Tablespoons fresh basil
2 Tablespoons fresh parsley
1 Tablespoon fresh oregano
1 teaspoon sea salt (or to taste)
1/2 teaspoon black pepper (or to taste)


1. Boil the water and let the pasta cook while you are preparing the sauce.
2. Add the olive oil to a large skillet, add the garlic, and cook over medium heat for about 3 minutes.
3. Add the rinsed and drained spinach, and cook for another 3 minutes. Note: spinach wilts quickly. Your skillet may not be large enough to hold all 8 cups. That's fine. Put what you can in the skillet and add more as space allows.
4. Add the coconut milk and cook for another 5 minutes. Then add the rest of the ingredients and stir until well combined.
5. By the time the sauce is done, the pasta should be ready. Serve over pasta and enjoy!

This looks so good!
I have everything on hand here to make it except for the coconut milk, so I am going to sub it with unsweetened almond milk and pray that it turns out just as delicious!
For the family, I will sauté some boneless chicken breast to top their dish.
With a side salad for us all!
