Easy Creamed Spinach Recipe


This easy creamed spinach recipe is the perfect companion to a Sunday lunch or dinner. It is quick to prepare and thick and creamy and also perfect for a week-day dinner or power lunch. It is a family recipe and I found the easy creamed spinach recipe in an old cookbook that used to belong to my mother. She gave me the cookbook when I moved into my first flat. It is one of the first recipes I prepared for my boyfriend who now is my husband. Maybe he asked me to move in with him after tasing this delicious easy creamed spinach recipe.
. You may find it interesting why I use frozen spinach instead of fresh spinach in this easy creamed spinach recipe. The reason is that one cup of frozen spinach has more than four times the amount of nutrients, such as fiber, folate, iron, and calcium than a cup of fresh spinach, making this easy creamed spinach recipe a very healthy choice. A great choice recipe if you want to power up.
