Pork Loin

  • 1 pound Boneless pork loin
  • Olive oil spray
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 3 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh rosemary

Creamed Spinach

  • 16 ounces baby spinach or spinach leaves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons Atkins Flour Mix
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup ½ cup Basic Bone Broth (page 161) or unsalted chicken broth
  • ¼ teaspoon Freshly grated nutmeg
  • Zest of one lemon
  • ½ cup Grated parmesan cheese


For the pork

  • Preheat the oven to 350F.  Place the pork loin, fatty side down, in a small skillet over medium heat.  Cook 4 to 5 minutes to brown the top and render some of the fat.  
  • Coat a 7-by-11-inch baking dish with olive oil spray.  Place the pork loin into the dish.  Combine the mustard, garlic, and rosemary in a small bowl.  Spread the mixture over the pork.
  • Place the baking dish with the pork loin into the oven and cook until an internal meat thermometer reads 145F. About 45 minutes.
  • Remove the pork loin from the pan, onto a cutting board and let rest while you make the creamed spinach.

Creamed Spinach

  • Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add the spinach in batches and stir to wilt, cooking each batch 1 to 2 minutes and transferring the wilted spinach to a bowl as you work.   
  • Melt the butter in the same skillet over medium heat.  When the butter is melted, sprinkle in the Atkins Flour Mix and cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring often.
  • Whisk in the cream, broth, nutmeg, and lemon zest; cook 1 minute more, until the mixture forms a thick sauce.  
  • Stir in the reserved spinach and the parmesan , stirring well until smooth and creamy.
