Spinach Mushroom Marinade (raw, GF, vegan)

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Tonight’s dinner was created on the basis of a mishap.  Bob went to the grocery store with a list but missed reading the bottom portion so only 1/2 of the ingredients came back for the Nori Rolls that I had in mind for us to make. So the Spinach Mushroom Marinade was born!

Ingredients for Wilting the Spinach:

  • 1 lb spinach
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced


  1. In a large bowl, massage the spinach, salt and lemon juice until wilted.  The salt and lemon juice help to break the spinach down and give a cooked appearance.


Ingredients for marinade:

  • 1 Tbsp Tamari or Braggs
  • 2 Tbsp cold-pressd olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • pinch of cayenne
  • 1 medium tomato (diced)
  • 1/2 red onion (sliced thinly)
  • 7 oz button mushrooms (approx. 3 cups chopped)
  • 1/2 avocado (diced)


  1. For the marinade – place veggies in sauce and stir until coated.
  2. Add in the wilted spinach and let stand for 15 to 30 minutes. Once ready…eat!
  3. Storage: Best to eat right away. We did store a portion of it in the fridge in a sealed container. We had to drain a little liquid off the next day and add a tad of salt, but outside of that it was wonderful.

      Hi Bridget,

      Lemon and salt have this wilting effect on all greens so keep that in your mind as you play around in the kitchen. Little miracle workers. :) Be well and happy! amie sue

    Such a delicious salad that my husband wants it every night! I said “No” otherwise he will get sick of it and I want him to want it again each and every time he eats it.
