Low Carb Menu #5Liver Shrinking Diet

This spinach dish is a delicious combination of flavors, and it’s easy to prepare. Serve this as a side dish to just about any main dish meat, poultry, or seafood. When cooled to room temperature, this also can be used as a spread or dip for vegetables.

This can also be made with a 16-oz bag of chopped frozen spinach. Just use 10 oz or so of mushrooms and a little more cheese.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

* 1 10 oz package chopped frozen spinach

* 1/2 C toasted pecan pieces (lightly toast in oven or on stove)

* 6-8 oz sliced mushrooms

* 1/4 C minced onion

* 2 cloves garlic, minced, pressed, or smashed

* 1/2 C grated cheese – at least some of it should be a hard cheese like Parmesan

* 1 C ricotta cheese

* Dry white wine – a little to de-glaze and 1-2 tbs. more

* 1/2 t black pepper

* Salt to taste

* A little nutmeg

Preparation:

1) Put pecans in food processor.

2) Thaw and squeeze liquid out of the spinach, then add that in, too.

3) Cook onion in skillet in a little oil until beginning to soften.

4) Add mushrooms, and cook on medium high until most of the water is out of them and mushrooms are browning.

5) De-glaze the pan with white wine

6) Add garlic and seasonings and cook for a minute or so.

7) Add the contents of the pan and cheeses to the food processor and process. If there isn’t enough liquid for the processor to do its thing (you hope), add the wine, a tablespoon at a time.

Now all that remains is to heat it through. Put it in a bowl or small casserole dish and either heat it in the microwave for a few minutes, or put in the oven at ~350 F. for 15 minutes or until the top browns.
