Grandma’s Old-Fashioned Spinach Stew comes from my paternal grandmother and is one of my dad’s favorite meals. I don’t know if she created the recipe herself or if it was handed down to her from her mother. Nonetheless, this recipe is uncomplicated, easy to make gluten-free, and absolutely delicious. 

Not only is this recipe amazing, but it’s also a great way to add spinach to your diet.
