Vegan Creamed Spinach

Quick and Easy Vegan Creamed Spinach with garlic, cayenne pepper, and nutmeg. This can be eaten as a side dish or used as the base for other things! Add in some artichoke and eat with some tortilla chips for a tasty appetizer! Mix with pasta and tomato sauce for a quick dinner. 

For the Creamed Spinach:

Defrost 16 oz of frozen spinach (use fresh if you want!). Remove as much liquid from the spinach as you can. Heat a couple tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat in a sauté pan. Add in 1/2 finely chopped onion, sauté for about 2 minutes. Add in 1 clove minced garlic, cook about 1 minute. Add in the spinach and 1/4 cup Trader Joe's vegan cream cheese and mix till the cream cheese is melted and incorporated. Finish off with about 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg, salt and cayenne pepper to taste.
