This Creamy Cauliflower & Spinach recipe makes a great low carb side dish and is an easy side for Thanksgiving. Keto, gluten free, low carb
Sometimes I’m just looking for a side dish that’s quick, easy and comforting. Delicious always helps too of course.
I, like many, have been a big fan of the Cauliflower movement (as I like to call it) and so I have been eating quite a lot of Cauliflower.
Especially riced Cauliflower or Cauliflower crumbles which I tend to like a bit more than your standard cauliflower.
In any case, do things not always get better when they’re creamy and luscious? That’s definitely the case here.
I serve this a lot when it’s a little colder out because it’s so warm and comforting and it’s just that type of food that makes you feel like you’re getting a hug.
Maybe it’s weird to get a hug from your food. I wouldn’t know. I get hugs from my food all the time and love it. To each their own, as they say.
This would be a great dish to add to your Thanksgiving or Christmas menu, particularly if you follow a low carb or keto way of eating, but no matter how you’re eating really.
This is definitely going in the side dish rotation for me.
Creamy Cauliflower & Spinach
- 4 cups cauliflower crumbles
- 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
- 3 cups fresh spinach
- 3 tbsp cream cheese
- 1 tbsp minced garlic
- salt and pepper to taste
- optional: 1/2 cup chopped cooked bacon
In a pan, add olive oil and yellow onion and garlic. Allow to cook for 2-3 minutes until starting to turn translucent but not burnt. Add in cauliflower crumbles, stir well and continue to cook until cauliflower has started to soften, about another 3-5 minutes.
Add in cream cheese and stir until well combined and melty. Add in spinach and cook until it wilts. Add in bacon (if using).
Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve.
