Creamed Spinach

Submitted by: COREBEENA
Creamed Spinach

Introduction

Spinach in a delicate white sauce. I puree when finished, then serve as a "green sauce" over boiled, smashed potatos with a poached egg on top - a childhood favorit I grew up with in Germany. Off course you can skip the step to puree and serve as a side dish instead. Spinach in a delicate white sauce.

Ingredients

    2 packages frozen, chopped spinach
    1 Onion, chopped
    1 Tbsp Butter
    1/4 cup flour
    1 cup milk
    Salt, pepper, fresh nutmeg

Directions

Melt butter in a heavy sauce pot. Add onions an cook until translucent. Add spinach and 1/2 cup water. Bring to a boil. Cover, cook until spinach is tender, about 10 minutes. Season with salt, pepper and fresh ground nutmeg. Uncover and cook to evaporate most of the water. Whisk flour into milk and add to spinach. Stir and bring to a boil to thicken. Turn off heat. Can now be served as a side dish, or puree with a stick blender and serve as a sauce.
