    Spinich at it's best.

    We grew up on creamed spinach, and had to try this recipe. It was delicious. Will be making this again and again. Eat it as a side dish, or serve it over dumplings (my kids and grandkids favorite) noodles or rice. Love this recipe.

Creamed Spinach


  • Place the spinach in a large saucepan or stockpot with 1/2 cup water. Cook, covered, over medium heat until the leaves are wilted, about 4-5 minutes.
  • Drain in a colander and let cool.
  • Press or squeeze out the excess water from the spinach and finely chop. Set aside in a medium bowl.
  • In a saucepan, heat the Silk with the bay leaf to just below the boiling point and set aside.
  • In another saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat and sauté the minced shallots for 2-3 minutes to soften. Sift in the flour and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, over medium heat until the flour is lightly browned, about 2 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  • Slowly whisk in the warm Silk and return the saucepan to the heat.
  • Bring sauce to a boil and reduce the heat to a simmer, whisking often to prevent lumps. Cook for 6-8 minutes until it reaches the consistency of thick cream.
  • Remove the bay leaf.
  • Mix in the spinach. Add the salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste.
