*Note: Feel free to watch the recipe video and read the blog post above!
Heat a teaspoon of olive oil in a skillet. Add the garlic and sauté for 30 seconds. Then add the spinach and a pinch of salt, and sauté for a further minute until just wilted. Transfer to a bowl, drain off any excess liquid, then stir in the vegan cream cheese and another pinch of salt to taste. (*See step-by-step pictures above).
Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Clean the same skillet (or use another large pan) and heat to medium-high heat.
Spread vegan butter (or oil) on one side of each of the bread slices. Once, the pan is hot, add 2 slices of bread, buttered side down. On each slice, spread some shredded cheese, the spinach cream filling, some more cheese (½ cup cheese per sandwich), and top with the other slices of bread, buttered side up.
Use a spatula to gently press down on the grilled cheese sandwich during frying. When the bottom bread is browned, flip the sandwich and cook until the other side is toasted too and the cheese is melted, about 2-4 minutes each side.
Serve warm and enjoy!
If you want a meltier sandwich, you can microwave it for about 15-20 seconds after frying.
