Rated as 3.59 out of 5 Stars

"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.
