The Best Vegan Creamed Spinach

If you happen to have a lot of fresh spinach sitting in your fridge and you know it will go bad in the next few days, this is the recipe for it.  Because that is exactly what happened to me.  And I am glad that spinach was there.  There is so much flavor in this creamy spinach that you will not regret it.  It is great for the little ones as well, as they pretty much love creamy foods and will disregard the green part in it. wink-wink
