Creamed Spinach (2) Recipe
For many people, a creamed spinach dish is often pivotal in getting them to give spinach another chance, after a childhood of being served boiled spinach out of a can.
- Wash and prepare the spinach (remove tough stems, etc.) Leave the water on the leaves (don't shake them off or drain them.)
- Put them in a microwave safe bowl, sprinkle a bit more water on them, cover and zap on high for 2 minutes or until wilted.
- Drain well, pressing any excess moisture out.
- While the spinach is draining, put the cream in the microwave safe bowl, and zap it on high for a minute or so until it looks like it's about to boil. Stir in a pinch of salt, and a few dashes of either black pepper or ground nutmeg. Return the spinach to the bowl, stir it in, and zap in the microwave for another minute to warm.
- Serve hot.
Instead of spinach, you can use another quick-cooking green such as beet leaves, etc. Optional: add a tablespoon or 2 of grated Parmesan to the cream.
