Keto Creamed Spinach

I live for a good steak and my favorite spot has always been Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse. Something about the ambiance, classic steakhouse feel and delicious, basic fare just makes me happy. In addition to a medium-rare petite filet, my go-to at Ruth’s Chris is always their Creamed Spinach, which is the perfect accompaniment to a perfectly seared steak and is keto friendly to boot!

Spinach is a staple in our house – I put it in my salads, my eggs, my low carb burritos…you name it. I love it raw or cooked and it seriously packs in the nutrients and is easier on my stomach than kale. If you haven’t tried the Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breast or Dijon Salmon with Spinach – put them on your list!

Benefits of Spinach

In addition to an excellent fiber source, spinach is rich in vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C and folate. Vitamin K is important for bone heath and spinach is the best source of vitamin K.

While I haven’t been able to completely perfect the Ruth’s Chris Creamed Spinach recipe, this keto creamed spinach version comes darn close! Enjoy with a steak or your favorite main protein for a delicious, keto meal that’s full of good, healthy fat plus nutrient-rich spinach. When I’m feeling extra fancy, I pair this with my keto lobster “mac” and cheese. So good!
