Chicken parm was my go-to growing up. I ordered it EVERYWHERE. Chicken parmesan platters, subs, you name it, I ordered it! If you’ve tried the Eggplant Parm from my cookbook, you know I take these kinds of dishes VERY seriously.

I am so excited to partner with my friends at Shenandoah Valley Organic to bring you today’s post! SVO is truly one of  my favorite chicken companies because they pride itself in producing the highest quality chicken grown on family-owned farms. Their chickens are humanely raised and fed a diet free from animal byproducts, pesticides, and antibiotics. On their website you can see where all of the farms are located, so you know just where your chicken was raised, which I LOVE.

Not only is this low carb option healthier and made with good ingredients, it also has that crispy breading that we know and love on our chicken parmesan!

I used to love traditional creamed spinach from this local chicken shop in New York that I grew up with. It was a holiday staple for us, but I knew it was loaded with junk! I am so excited to have made this healthier version!

The star of the show is my new favorite dairy-free milk from Pacific Foods! Their cashew milk is perfectly creamy and so delicious. It’s versatile, plant-based, and made with organic and Fair Trade Certified™ cashews!

The cashew milk makes for such a hearty and creamy sauce without any of the dairy… such a win! We used butter in this, but if you want a dairy-free option, feel free to substitute the butter for extra-virgin olive oil and ditch the cheese!

Healthier Creamed Spinach

Prep Time 5 minutes Cook Time 30 minutes Serves 4

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400°F. Grease a 9x9 baking dish with butter or oil of choice and set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan, heat the butter over medium-high heat.
  3. Add onion and garlic and cook until onion is translucent about 5 minutes.
  4. Add spices and cook for one minute until fragrant.
  5. Add arrowroot flour and stir for one minute until well combined.
  6. Pour in cashew milk. Mix well. Bring sauce to a boil. Once at a boil, lower heat and let simmer until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Add in 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese (if using) and whisk until cheese has melted, about 30 seconds. **Make sure the mixture has thickened a good amount before adding spinach.
  7. In batches, add spinach (and kale if using) to the sauce until the greens start to wilt. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. Take off heat.
  8. Pour spinach/kale mixture into a greased 9x9 casserole dish and top with remaining parmesan cheese. Bake for 20 minutes or until bubbly and the cheese on the top is a golden brown.
  9. Serve warm!

Recipe Notes

  • Can use dairy-free milk of choice but I do love cashew milk for it's creaminess!
  • Can omit kale and use all spinach like I did in the video!
  • Make this whole30 compliant: Use ghee or extra-virgin olive oil instead of the butter and omit the cheese.

Slow Cooker Asian Beef Bowls | Lexi's Clean Kitchen

Now it really feels like winter. Reason one being that I am freezing writing this, two because I spent this weekend in New York visiting family & the snow affected some of our plans, and three that the holidays are quickly approaching. This time of year usually means the crock-pot lives on the counter (well, at least once or twice a week that is)!

Slow Cooker Asian Beef Bowls | Lexi's Clean Kitchen

Here’s my suggestion: go out today, buy yourself some veggies, a cauliflower, and the meat- get home, throw the meat in your crock-pot, and by dinner time this perfect comforting Sunday night dinner bowl will be sitting on your table! I really love this recipe.
