German Rahmspinat - Creamed Spinach

Submitted by: BIBILU

Introduction

This is one of the few vegetable dishes that my young grandson loves, but without the onions. He said it was like the Rahmspinat he ate when he lived in Germany. I serve it to family and for company.

I have made this with Smart Balance buttery spread and skim milk. Do not 'overdo' the nutmeg.
