Description

There are lots of different approaches to making creamed spinach—starting with a roux, splashing in some wine, sprinkling on some nutmeg—but most of the time when I have a hankerin’ for the stuff, I just stick to the basics so I can get it into my mouth more quickly: Cream. Spinach. And just a few other simple things to enhance the flavor of the two.

Ingredients

  • 1 whole Onion, Finely Diced
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 bag (large Bag) Fresh Spinach
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste

Preparation

Finely dice one onion and 2 cloves of garlic. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and sauté until translucent.

Now add in the spinach. Lightly press it down with a spoon and toss it very gently as it wilts. When it comes to creamed spinach, wilting is good. When the spinach is mostly wilted(but not falling apart) add in about 1 cup of heavy cream Stir it around just a bit and give it a sprinkle of salt and pepper.

That’s all there is too it. And word on the street is, it’s delicious cold the next day, eaten with a fork straight out of the fridge. Of course, I wouldn’t know anything about that.

I’ve never liked cooked spinach, but I actually didn’t mind this recipe. I only did 1/2 onion and I would do less, but otherwise I will make this again.

I believe I have gained 10 lbs since I found this site. In order to fight the bulge I finally had to start cutting the cream with a little half and half, but I am such a huge fan of this recipe–I LOVE spinach!

this was delish, especially with a splash of wine! We never knew we liked spinach so much :-) & even better yet – naturally gluten-free!

I’d never had creamed spinach of any kind before trying this. I am hooked. My family can take it or leave it, but it matters not, they eat what I make or they remain hungry.
