Creamed Spinach
What can be better than a side of creamy, nutmeg-infused spinach? Perfect to accompany any roast and especially good at Christmas.

Method

Step 1

Wash the spinach and steam in a steamer till the leaves just start to wilt. Set aside to cool. Roll the leaves up and squeeze the water out of them. Chop up finely.

Step 2

Heat the butter in a saucepan, then add the onion and cook for 5 mins until softened. Stir in the milk slowly. Gently cook for 5 mins until the milk reduces.

Step 3

Stir spinach into the sauce with the cream, gently heat, then finely grate over some nutmeg and season well.


My Notes
1. Use baby/young spinach with thin stems.
2. You can add some crushed and deep fried garlic too.
3. The spinach can be cooked in a pan at high heat till it just starts wilting.
4. You can lightly roast a teaspoon of flour in the butter before adding the milk if you would like to have a thicker dip.
