Just made this recipe - my husband isn't a huge spinach person HOWEVER he LOVED this too!!! AND I have cholesterol issues so the greek yogurt was perfect:-) I've always thought of creamed spinach as a 'no no' since it usually has so much cheese in it - not so any longer yeah!!! Easy to make and good for you too - would highly recommend doesn't get much better than that! Thanks! Read More

The recipe was super easy and quick. However as written it is very bland. I added a bit of flavor by including some fresh minced garlic and a bit of cayenne pepper. Overall I guess it is a good way to dress up frozen spinach but I've definitely had tastier side dishes. Read More

So good and easy! I love spinach but have a hard time getting my hubby to eat it but he devoured it! I was skeptical since it didn't have any cheese in it but it doesn't need it at all! I used fresh spinach and added it with the broth and wilted it for a few minutes. Yum! Update: This is a normal side for us now. I have added even more flavor by adding 1/2 an onion and garlic. Yum!

I actually made it using vegetable broth in place of chicken broth and served it tossed with penne pasta. It was a nice change from the usual tomato sauce. Read More

This was really good I did use 1TBSP of coconut oil instead of the butter and sauteed a sweet onion and garlic before I did the flour. I will be making this again! Read More
