This is a different take on the popular appetizer - only gluten and dairy free! Serve this with some plantain chips or bell peppers!

  • Ingredients:
    2 cups spinach chopped (or chard, kale, etc)
    1 tsp sea salt
    1/2 tsp black pepper
    2 avocados, quartered
    1/2 cup coconut milk (low or full fat, canned)
    4 tomatillos, outer husk removed
    1 cup shredded cheese (I used Daiya dairy free)
    1/2 cup fresh cilantro
    1 tsp minced garlic
    1 jalapeno pepper, (remove seeds for less heat)
    1/2 tsp chipotle powder
  • Instructions:
    In a skillet, saute spinach in about 1 tsp olive oil. Sprinkle salt and pepper over spinach. In a small sauce pan, cover tomatillos with water and bring to a boil.

    Meanwhile, in a small blender (I used a Magic Bullet), combine avocados, cilantro, coconut milk, jalapeno, garlic and chipotle powder. Pulse until mixture starts to smooth out.

    Carefully drain tomatillos and place in blender with avocado mixture. Pulse a few more times until avocados and tomatillos are well blended.

    Pour avocado mixture into skillet with spinach and stir. Pour mixture into a greased 2 quart baking dish and sprinkle with shredded cheese.

    Bake at 425F for about 15 minutes or until cheese starts to bubble and brown.
