This meal is  a delicious way to eat spinach,  which is full of vitamin K (one cup of cooked spinach yields more than 150% of your daily intake requirement!), vitamins A & C, manganese and plenty of flavonoids and carotenoids – all which help to protect your body against disease and cancer. Plus, you get all the goodness of onions, tomatoes, mushrooms and garlic, plus some healthy fats, which you you need to absorb all those vitamins.

You can use regular white button, Swiss brown, cremini or Portobello mushrooms. If you can’t do butter or ghee, simply use a little extra olive oil or coconut oil instead. For spinach, you can use baby leaves or torn English spinach or Swiss chard, as long as it’s green and leafy.

  1. Terrific. I made this with 1 tsp total of avocado oil to cut down on the fats and didn’t use any additional salt…added italian sausage which is ,already, very high and fat and salt.

    I think this dish would be equally delicious over a sprouted grain pasta.
