Love Italian food like creamy Tuscan chicken? Then you'll enjoy this simple Tuscan Creamed Spinach! Frozen and thawed spinach is cooked with sun-dried tomatoes, cream, garlic, herbs and parmesan. All in less than 15 minutes and using just a few common ingredients.

This recipe is adapted from our Classic Creamed Spinach but I skipped the mascarpone and used more cream which I reduced to just about half for a creamier result.

For a complete keto dinner recipe you can serve this creamy spinach side with crisped up, skin-on chicken thighs or grilled chicken breasts, pork chops, or any fish or seafood. Enjoy!

Ingredients (makes 4 servings)

  • 1/3 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes (37 g/ 1.3 oz)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream (240 ml/ 8 fl oz)
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese (30 g/ 1.1 oz) or use any other hard cheese of choice
  • 600 g frozen spinach, thawed (1.3 lb)
  • sea salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. To a medium pan add the chopped, drained sun-dried tomatoes and minced garlic. Cook until fragrant for 2 to 3 minutes. (If you're using oil-free sun-dried tomatoes, add 2 to 3 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil.)
  2. Pour in the cream and add the dried herbs and grated parmesan (or use any other hard cheese such as Pecorino, goat's cheese or Swiss cheese.) Cook on medium until reduced to about half of the volume, for about 5-10 minutes. Keto Tuscan Creamed Spinach
  3. Once thawed, squeeze out any excess water from the spinach. (After you drain the spinach you should get about 285 g/ 10 oz net weight of spinach.)
  4. Add the spinach to the pan and toss to combine with the creamy cheese sauce. Heat through and then take off the heat. Keto Tuscan Creamed Spinach

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
