Healthy Spinach Casserole

Do you have recipes that you love, but they’re just not overly healthy? Did you know that you can clean up some recipes and “health” them up. That’s what I did with this spinach recipe that my neighbor gave me to make for Thanksgiving. I made it into a healthy spinach casserole. The recipe is originally from

So what did I change and how did I know? I didn’t know ~ I just decided to try it and see how it turned out.

How did it turn out you might ask? AWESOME!! Everyone loved it! Even the kids! So don’t be afraid to experiment. Get brave! Have fun, I mean how bad could it really be with all these great ingredients? 

And what you’ll notice is that you FEEL better when you use healthier ingredients – healthy doesn’t mean it has to taste bad or have no flavor. Now a days there are TONS of great healthy recipes all over the place. The key is just to know WHAT ingredients you want to use and what you’re best to avoid. Also knowing what ingredients might not work for your body is good to. SO tune into YOU!

Here’s what I changed – 

Instead of:                                              I used:

butter                                                      coconut oil

whole milk                                             coconut milk

panko breadcrumbs                             I left these out – it didn’t need them

all purpose flour                                   arrow root 


Healthy Spinach Casserole

2 TBSP coconut oil

1 large onion, chopped

3 large garlic gloves, minced

1.5-2 TBSP arrow root

1 Tsp Himalayan Pink Salt

1.5 cups of coconut milk

3/4 cup shredded Gruyere Cheese

1/4 cup grated Parm cheese

4 (10 oz) packages of frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained, and squeezed dry

1. Preheat over to 400 F. Grease a shallow 6 cup baking dish with coconut oil.

2. Melt 2 TBSP of coconut oil in a large skillet and saute the onions, garlic, and salt for about 5 minutes. Add arrow root and stir so that it’s incorporated, then add the coconut milk and let it come to a low boil; stir until thickened, you may have to add a little more arrow root. To do this, just take out a spoonful of the coconut milk in a little bowl and add more arrow root(a tsp at a time) mix until incorporated then add back. It should thicken slightly.

3. Turn down the heat and add the Gruyere cheese and spinach to the coconut milk mixture stir to incorporate.

4. Transfer to the baking dish, sprinkle with the parm cheese and bake for about 25 mins. Serves 8.
