The past two days, I’ve been having MAJOR pizza cravings. The first week of getting “back on track” is always the hardest for me, but luckily, I’ve got a detox-friendly recipe that totally hit the spot! (and it’s quick, too!)
Adapted from DetoxTheWorld.com
6-oz bag of fresh spinach
Splash of water
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup high-quality marinara sauce
1 ounce raw cheddar-style goat cheese
Sea salt, dried basil and oregano, to taste
In a 3-qt. saute pan over medium heat, add the garlic, water and spinach.
Cover for 1-2 minutes, until the spinach is bright green and wilted:
This was pure heaven. So decadent and rich, with all the pizza-flavors I was craving– yet, properly combined so it will digest seamlessly! This served one hungry me, but could probably serve two as a side dish.
The only change I’d make for next time is omitting the water used to cook the spinach. You could use the marinara sauce instead, reducing the moisture content so it would be more pizza/pasta like.
Hope you enjoy!
