The first thing my kids say when I serve them spinach is, “EEWWW, what is this green stuff?!”

I proceed to tell them the whole “Popeye” story that spinach makes you strong, yada, yada, yada.

Of course, it never seems to matter how much of a story I tell about the vegetable in question, they still continue to complain about it.

However, I have found that they do complain a lot less about eating their vegetables since we’ve switched to a low carb, high fat way of eating.

Vegetables become a lot more desirable when they have some butter or them or are baked with cheese!

My spinach gratin recipe is how spinach was meant to be consumed—with lots of cheese! It is a huge hit in our household, the kids don’t complain about the “green” stuff on their plates. I perfected this recipe so it’s not ‘soupy’ like au gratin dishes you may have tasted in the past.

I’ve swapped out regular flour for coconut flour. Almond flour would work well too.

Don’t be fooled by the cheese, however, because this recipe contains over a pound of leafy greens, making it a dense and hearty side dish. This spinach gratin is perfect for everyday, a welcome holiday side dish and perfect for company. It’s a recipe that pairs well with just about anything!

I agree, spinach was meant to be eaten with cheese! Sounds like a great recipe, tnx! One question though: if you use coconut flour do you feel the taste?
