Vegetarian, low-fat, gluten and dairy free side dish...
A vegetarian, low-fat, gluten and dairy free friend invited me over for dinner. We're making rice noodles and eggplant with peanut sauce. What's a good side dish I could bring, preferably something with some protein?

Executive Chef Cris Comerford's No Cream Creamed Spinach
2 pounds baby spinach, washed and cleaned
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 shallots, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1. Blanch half a pound of spinach in salted, boiling water. Immediately, “shock” the blanched spinach in a bowl of iced water. Drain and squeeze out the excess water. Puree in a blender. Set aside.
2. In a large skillet, sweat the shallots and garlic until translucent. Add the rest of the spinach leaves. Toss and sauté until wilted. Fold in the spinach puree. Season with salt and pepper.
