Crab and Mushroom Spinach Sauté


It’s finally after Labor Day – meaning bikini season is dying down and we can get back to the things we love – carbs. We don’t have to keep ordering the basic kale salad for lunch -we can eat again! Football  season and fall is all about comfort – the holidays are coming, big sweaters and big meals. However, now that you’ve been used to all that healthy food all summer, you can just jump right off the bandwagon. Let’s ween you over with some good carbs – like organic mushrooms.

I first thought about inventing this recipe after I grabbed a spicy mushroom salad from IndiKitch in the city. It was my first time there, and I was skeptical that this would one, fill me up, and two, satisfy my lunch needs – but it ended up being one of the most delicious (and filling!) lunches I’d had in a while, so I wanted to learn to recreate it at home. 

Seeds of Change® also just happened to come out with these new organic, simmer sauce packets that take cooking to a new level. Not only delicious, but simple (and hello! organic). You can easily pour one of these packs over your next meal and simmer in the skillet for a few minutes making a delightful meal – that means fast and tasty (not that us mom actually taste our food anyways right?). Plus Seeds of Change® sauces are certified organic and free of artificial colors, flavors and preservatives (why isn’t everything?). So here was the end result:

Crab and Mushroom Spinach Sauté


The crab is compliments of a hefty sale at Stew Leonard’s on the way home from the lake house one weekend. I thought – hmmmm…I love mushrooms, and I love crab – I wonder how this will take together? And well, the rest is history, my friends! (Don’t worry, you don’t need to steam fresh crab legs for this recipe – it’s just as good with fake crab or canned/frozen crab meat – which I always have in my freezer anyways. FYI – did you know it’s that easy to find crab meat?).
