Sarah's Spinach Side Dish

Rated as 4.35 out of 5 Stars
770

"This is a quick and flavorful way to prepare spinach during a busy weeknight. It goes great with a homestyle meal or when making something lite and healthy. Regular butter or whole milk can be substituted. I use whipped butter and low-fat milk to reduce saturated fat. Fresh spinach may be used, although I recommend frozen, but will need to be boiled until tender, finely chopped, and dried very well. Double the sauce ingredients to make a slightly creamy texture. Recipe makes 2 regular or 3 small servings. Hope you like it."

  1. Melt whipped butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; stir flour, garlic salt, and kosher salt into the melted butter until smooth.
  2. Whisk in low-fat milk, bring to a simmer, and reduce heat to low. Simmer sauce until thickened, whisking constantly, about 1 minute.
  3. Stir spinach into the sauce and heat until warmed through, 1 to 2 more minutes.

Wish I could give it 3.5 stars. Would probably be better with cream, sauteed garlic, and grated parm mixed in. Could also add red pepper flakes.

This recipe was fantastic as is, I only made one change and that was that I added a full cup of skim milk, instead of just 1/4 cup. I love that because it's simply flavored, it can go with prett...

Very tasty! I used 2 cloves of fresh minced garlic, a pinch of nutmeg and additional milk to make it more sauce-y.
