What is Florentine Sauce

Florentine sauce is typically made with butter and cream, so it is obviously not dairy free or vegan. It is often served with chicken.

In my version I keep it really simple. Trust me, this creamy garlic sauce is seriously so delicious. I made it for friends and they were all shocked how creamy and rich it tasted.

Which we can achieve by using vegan butter and for the amazing flavor poultry seasoning is used. It pimps this garlic sauce over the top. This seasoning makes all the difference and adds so much flavor. It is seriously the best you’ve ever tried and made, even better than the real deal.

Variations and tips

Mushroom Florentine: just replace spinach by mushrooms, which will add a meaty texture to this sauce. I would imagine portobello mushrooms are also amazing for taste and texture.

Pasta Florentine: is always a choice for me. Penne, tagliatelle, gnocchi, spaghetti –  everything will turn out amazing.
Florentine soup: add more cuisine cream, or vegetable broth. Also you can add some peas, asparagus, or potatoes if you like.

Add ons to try: capers, lemon zest, roasted bell peppers, chili flakes. Try these to make this Florentine sauce even more special.
