Creamed Spinach

Lynn demonstrates how to make a great side dish, Creamed Spinach.  This would make a delicious side dish for any dinner or for a Holiday meal.  


  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 Tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 1 clove garlic, finely diced
  • 1 cup milk
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Nutmeg
  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 12 ounces baby spinach

Melt 4 Tablespoons butter in a pot over medium heat.  Sprinkle in flour and whisk to blend into a paste.  Cook for 5 minutes, or until light golden in color.  Mix in onion and garlic and cook for 1 minute.  Whisk milk in slowly until combined.  Let cook 5 minutes while the spinach is prepared.

To prepare spinach, melt 1 Tablespoon butter in a separate pot over medium heat.  Add spinach by the handful and toss occasionally to coat.  Cook spinach for 4-5 minutes until wilted, but not soggy -- it should be bright green and the stems should still have a crunch to them.  Remove from heat.

Season the sauce with salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste.  Add spinach to the sauce, folding to combine.
