Tofu Creamed Spinach

Tofu Creamed Spinach

Libby 0

"A good alternative to higher-fat versions of creamed spinach, silken tofu is pureed with milk, cheese, and seasonings, then added to spinach sauteed with onions and garlic. Serve it to anyone, and don't tell them there's tofu in it until they've already eaten some. If you like, pan fry some thinly sliced mushrooms with the onion and garlic, or add some canned mushrooms with the spinach. You could also add a little crushed red pepper for heat and sprinkle some extra cheese on top for serving."

WOW!!!!! you would never know you were eating tofu.....I used silken tofu and rice milk. I baked it for 15 min. @ 325 just to bake off some moisture and it was great.I was worried that the spina...

Great flavor, good texture, and very healthy. I halved it and used 1 bunch fresh spinach, 1/2 onion, 1 clove garlic, 1/3 c milk, 1/2 pkg soft tofu, 1/3 nutritional yeast (rather than cheese), ge...

Some reviewers commented on the bitterness of this dish. The way to reduce bitterness is to include the stem of the spinach in your dish (many people cut it out). The variety is also important, ...

I thought this recipe was great!! I tossed mine with some angel hair pasta, a nice low-fat creamy dish!

Very yummy. A great way to get your protein and veggies in one delicious dish. I substituted 3 - 10oz packages of spinach for the fresh because I'm lazy! I only put 1/3 cup of cheese and adde...

What a creative recipe! This was excellent. My husband and I (and EVERYONE ELSE IN THE WORLD) love creamed spinach, but I always feel so guilty stirring in all that butter and cream!! I was loo...

Great recipe! It's a filling, delish dinner when tossed with pasta, and would probably be a great filling for a lasagna. Next time I'll probably add tomatoes or mushrooms too

This didn't come close to being "creamed". I mean, it wasn't creamy at all. 'Kind of turned out like - uh - um- I don't know what, but there was no creaminess to it. No sauce. Easily eaten w...

I will definitely make this recipe again. It was so creamy that my brother asked me how much butter or cream was in it. I used the advice of others and put it on top of pizza, but it is also del...
