EVA’S CREAM OF SPINACH
Quick and easy, delicious and nutritious. As a side dish for meatballs, steaks, ham, sausage, fried chicken, even fried eggs. Shown here with some Romanian skirt steak done rare.
- 1 head of garlic –peeled and minced (in a Magic Bullet if you own one) or use a garlic press
- 3 tablespoons of olive oil
- 3 tablespoons of all purpose flour
- Milk (regular or Lactose-free), no Skim milk or 2% about 1and 1/2 large cup but you will have to decide what consistency you need.
- 1 bag of fresh spinach
- Salt and pepper to taste
Boil some salted water and add the spinach for a quick boil 2-3 minutes. Do not overcook it because it looses all the vitamins and minerals. Drain it in a strainer and chop it up on a wooden board. Now you’re ready to make the most delicious cream of spinach of your life. Add the olive oil and chopped garlic to the pan, medium heat. Stir it continuously for about 1 minute, (don’t burn the garlic, when you smell the aroma, it’s ready), than add the flour, stir it, again so no lumps remain. Add the chopped spinach, stir and mix it a few times and start adding the milk while stirring continuously. Some people prefer it very thick, some very light. It’s your choice. When you’ve reached your favorite consistency you can season it with some salt / garlic salt and fresh black pepper.
Now run and lock your doors and windows from all the hungry neighbors and enjoy your master piece with your favorite steaks, ham, sausage, chicken or fried eggs on top.
