Instructions Checklist
  • Heat 2 tbsp. oil in a large pot over medium-high. Add the spinach a bit at a time (in 3 to 4 rounds), stirring, until just wilted. Season with salt. Remove to a colander. Turn off heat and reserve pot. When spinach is cool enough to handle, press to release as much liquid as possible.

  • While spinach is cooling, in a bowl or large measuring cup, whisk the coconut milk, cornstarch, tamari, and nutmeg until smooth.

  • Heat remaining oil in the pot over medium. Add the mushrooms, shallot, and garlic. Cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Pour in coconut milk mixture. Bring to a simmer and cook until thickened, about 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low. Stir drained spinach into sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.

  • Transfer creamed spinach to a serving platter. Top with crispy fried onions just before serving.
