“I ate a pound of spinach”… said no one ever. Until now.
Mr. Cyclists aka Chef Sam cooked a creamed spinach dish. He started with a 2.5 pound bag of fresh spinach from Costco. And yes, at meal time he ate quite a bit of spinach. I don’t really know if it was a whole pound!
Anyway, he based his recipe off of this Food Wishes YouTube site
Don’t freak out. We did not use all this butter. Sam reduced it to a total of 2 tablespoons (or slightly less) in this recipe. He also used whole milk instead of cream, and added some extra fresh chopped garlic. Everything else was pretty much the same!
And, it turned out delicious!
We ate it with some homemade salmon croquettes.
Look at those chunks of garlic. Mmm.
What we realized is that the spinach to sauce ratio is fairly healthy. You are able to eat a lot of healthy greens, and much less creamy sauce.
