“A spinach dish, creamed with a roux of butter, flour and water. It's very easy to make, but slightly time consuming on account using fresh spinach. It is well worth the effort though!”

  1. Wash spinach well and remove any hard stems. In a large pot, bring water to a boil and add spinach (it will cook down very rapidly). Remove spinach from the stovetop, let cool slightly then drain reserving the water.
  2. Using an electric food processor, puree the spinach.
  3. Make roux with the butter, flour and reserved water. Add the roux to the spinach, stir and serve.

This recipe gets 5 stars for taste, but only 3 for clear instructions. The instruction assume you know how to make a roux. Luckily I did so it was easy enough. I added two cloves of garlic to the roux...yummmm. I steamed the spinach, and used that water to make the roux, but it was not enough so I also added enough milk to make the 1/2 cup. It was GREAT! next time I might add some chopped onion. Garlic and onion make just about everything wonderful!



this recipe has the basic ingredients to get you started, but it needs a little half and half to get the cream flavor.



Thank you for uploading a recipe using fresh spinach and a roux! Almost all of the recipes on here just microwave frozen spinach and add fat free milk (bleck!). I doubled the amount of spinach and added a few crushed cloves of garlic to the butter when I was melting it to make the roux and about 1/2 cream after the roux had thickened to make it a bit creamer. You can also add 1 cup diced cooked artichoke hearts (or even the kind packed in water/oil) to make a spinach artichoke dip. Instead of garlic it is also really good with some nutmeg to make it taste Swedish.
