  • 4 tablespoons olive oil , divided
  • 16 ounces cremini mushrooms , sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic , finely chopped
  • 2 shallots , peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon thyme leaves
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt , plus more for the pasta water
  • 2 tablespoons gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 1 (13.5-ounce) can coconut milk
  • 5 ounces spinach
  • ½ lemon , juiced
  • 8 ounces gluten-free spaghetti


  • Start by bringing a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of the olive oil to a large deep skillet and bring to medium-high heat. Cook half the batch of sliced mushrooms until browned, about 12 minutes. Transfer the mushrooms to a bowl and fry the second batch in the skillet using the same method, with 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
  • Pour all the mushrooms back into the skillet and add the garlic, shallots, thyme, and salt. Cook for a few minutes, until the shallots are softened.
  • Add the flour to the mushrooms and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the coconut milk and reduce heat to a low simmer. Add the spinach and lemon juice and cover with the lid to wilt the spinach. Keep the sauce on very low heat.
  • Cook the spaghetti according to the package instructions, until al dente. Scoop the pasta out of the pot and into the mushroom sauce with 2-3 tablespoons of pasta water to thin. Mix to combine. Transfer to bowls and serve.
