What Ingredients Do You Need To Make Ginger Mushrooms and Spinach [Vegan]

  • 3 1/2 cups Crimini mushrooms
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos, soy sauce, or tamari
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • Sesame and hemp seeds, lightly toasted (optional)

How To Make Ginger Mushrooms and Spinach [Vegan]

  1. If you plan to use the toasted sesame and hemp seed topping, you can get that started first. Spread 1 teaspoon of each on a parchment-lined sheet pan and bake for approximately 5-7 minutes on 300°F. Watch carefully, so it doesn't burn to set aside.
  2. Over medium-light heat, add coconut oil to a skillet and melt to cover the surface of the pan.
  3. Add sliced mushrooms and let cook until softened, approximately 10-12 minutes.
  4. The mushrooms should excrete water, making for a little bit of broth in the skillet. Make sure they're cooking slowly and not sticking or burning. You want them to be soft and tender.
  5. While that's working, in a small bowl, add coconut aminos in a bowl and add grated ginger, mix to combine with a spoon.
  6. Pour the ginger mixture over mushrooms and mix lightly with a wooden spoon. Let simmer for 2 minutes.
  7. Add spinach on top and do not mix. Cover the skillet for approximately 5 more minutes so the spinach can steam and the flavors can all melt together.
  8. Using tongs, grab the softened spinach and add to a serving dish. Next, pour the mushrooms with the pan sauce over the spinach. Top with toasted sesame and hemp seeds and serve.

  1. It started out great! I was reading the recipe and getting ready to salivate when whack! I saw the coconut oil. Oh, OK, this recipe is for fat vegans. My cousin was a fat vegan; she died young from colon cancer. We used to argue about the toxicity of oils all the time… unfortunately she lost the argument and I miss her very much. That coconut oil, or any oil, is what is left after removing all the water-soluble nutrients and fiber, and is an unhealthy addition to any meal. It\’s also unnecessary. You can Google "water frying" or "frying with no oil" and get a million technique variations. And, in this recipe, you\’ll save 120 empty calories.
