Easy Creamed Spinach Recipe

Here is the easy creamed spinach recipe I promised you.  It tastes even better when you use fresh spinach picked from your own garden.  And don’t forget – organic is best.

I just read about someone asking about the pro’s and cons of irradiated spinach to kill bugs and make it last longer.  Well I really wouldn’t know about that. There are many opinions about it and I think the jury is still out on that.  But whatever the outcome I personally prefer the fresh organic spinach from my garden. It should of course be washed well.

So here is my recipe:

3 Tablespoons butter
1 small onion minced
1 teaspoon salt
2 lbs spinach washed very well, chopped and cooked
2 cloves garlic
11/2 Tablespoons potato starch or corn flour
1/4  teaspoon pepper

Lightly fry the onion and garlic in butter till the onion is tender.  Throw away the garlic.  Add milk to the corn flour gradually.  Stir in the salt and pepper.  Slowly add milk mixture to the sauted onions and stir over low heat till thickened. (The sauce gets very thick very quickly)   Stir in the well-drained spinach and heat.  Serves 6.
