I made this with 24 oz of spinach instead of 16 oz and I used blended Mori Nu for the vegan mayonnaise and I omitted the vegan cream cheese.
If used as a side dish and this recipe is divided into 4, 6 ounce servings then as adjusted my recipe software calculated per serving: 106 calories, 10.4 g fiber and 18 g protein. Obviously no cholesterol. If you go to the Boston Market web site, their version has for 6.3oz-Calories 250; Calories from Fat 180; Cholesterol 60mg;Dietary Fiber 3g; Protein 8g. Vegan wins for health and for cruelty free.
SUPER recipe, very addictive. Just be sure to drain the spinach well before you make the dish! Thanks for sharing!!!

I didn't have any Vegannaise so instead I added a 12 oz. jar of artichoke hearts (kept in water, not oil) and the Tofutti cream cheese I had was the Herbs & Chives kind which really added to the flavors.  The other thing I added was a nice healthy squirt of lemon juice and I didn't measure out the spinach, I just used the 10 oz. package of frozen spinach that I happened to have.  It came together surprisingly well.  I have made some experimental substitutions before to disastrous results, but this is a keeper.

I love this stuff, but we are really a "one pot meal" kinda couple so I had to make it fit that, I mix it with pasta or rice, leave out the cream cheese and add soy milk to make it more saucy and add some oregano.  I bake mix it all in and bake it at 375 till it's nice and hot.  Very yummy.

MMMM!  I used homemade sourcream (this site) and bean-naise (The Uncheese Cookbook) and it was FABULOUS!  Going to have my leftovers with pasta as well (tasted like a florentine sauce).  Also would be great as a dip.

So good- only disagreement is the serving size- I ate half of it myself- not that that's not a lot of food- just very very good.

Thank you for this recipe!

I made this into a hot spinach artichoke dip today, and it is super delicious!  I used a 10oz box of frozen chopped spinach and a 14oz can of quartered artichoke hearts, along with the other ingredients.  I also added a bunch of Tapatio hot sauce.  This is too good to make very often!

I just want to add that the leftovers of this make a great addition to cooked pasta.  Today, I added some of this creamed spinach to some leftover penne in tomato pasta sauce, and it was very tasty.

Very creamy and rich!  I've never had the Boston Market version, but this one is great.  This reminds me of hot spinach artichoke dip.  I used a 16 oz bag of frozen chopped spinach, and I'm sure fresh baby spinach would be even better.  I did microwave this, but if I had access to a stovetop (which I don't at the moment), I'd cook this on the stove as I prefer that.  I did add a bit more nutritional yeast, maybe an extra tablespoon.  I also added a little seasoned salt in place of some of the regular sea salt to boost the flavor.  I probably won't make this dish too often because of the fattiness with all of that Tofutti vegan cream cheese and Vegenaise, but it is tasty.

This was so yummy!  I made this tonight with a Tofurky, mashed potatoes and gravy.  My husband and 14 month old son loved the spinach dish.  My husband talked about it through the whole dinner.  I changed it up a little bit because I don't own a microwave and I used fresh spinach instead of frozen.  It was still so fast and simply to make.  It was delicious.  I'm going to add other veggies next time I make it and might even try adding some pasta.  I highly recommend this dish.  ;)b
