Simple Best Ever Creamed Spinach Cooking Recipes

Best Ever Creamed Spinach

Not exactly classic, this recipe contains green onions and does not contain flour, but I think it is a definite improvement on the original. I like to serve simple cooking recipes with almost anything, from poached and grilled fish to grilled steak, steamed lobster, or thick grilled veal chops.

Makes 6 servings

  • 3 pound types of greens spinach, stemmed, and chopped

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 bunch (6 to 8) green onions (scallions), white and light green parts only, very thinly sliced

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • Pinch nutmeg (optional)

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream, simmered over medium heat until reduced to about 1/3 cup, about 15 minutes

  1. In a large kettle over medium heat, cook the spinach in the water that clings to the leaves after washing until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Raise the heat to high and evaporate the moisture in the bottom of the pan, tossing the spinach to keep it from burning.

  2. Melt the butter in a medium size heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add the green onions and saute for 1 minute. Stir in the types of greens spinach. Season well with salt, pepper and nutmeg, if using. Stir in the cream. Heat through, simmering until the vegetable is thick and creamy, 2 to 3 minutes longer. Serve this simple best ever creamed spinach cooking recipes very hot.
