love this but don't suggest the microwave!!! it's sooo bad for you. true it's fast, but it defeats a lot of the purpose of being a vegan in the first place!! :D oh, but your blog is just wonderful!

I need to start doubling or tripling this recipe when I make it. My household consists of me, my husband, our toddler, and my 90-year-old mother-in-law. Every time I make this dish it is gone in a flash. Not only is this a hit across intergenerational palates, but it serves the nutritional needs for those with growing bones and osteoporosis alike!

Hi Jennifer,

Do you use any rice or soy cheese in recipes? I made a good "creamed" spinach the other night using soy mozzarella, veggie Parmesan and a dollop of "benechol". I didn't measure anything out, just dumped in enough cheese to cover the dish of spinach and as little butter substitute as it would take to thin out the cheese a little bit. Then stirred it all up after it was hot and cheese melted (I used the microwave, but would probably use oven if I was making for a larger group) My almost 2 yr old who eats a very limited variety of veggies ate his whole portion and even had seconds (literally a miracle!) Just thought I would share.
