My creamed spinach recipe, aka Spinat, is one I'm sure your family will love. Among easy spinach recipes, this one's really delicious and nutritious. Why not make it often? German menus often feature creamed chopped spinach. Usually seasoned with nutmeg, the spinach cooking water and milk are used to make the cream sauce. Want a richer sauce? Then use just cream or a mixture of cream and milk. Sure, this increases the calorie count.
But, surely, that's offset by all the vitamins, minerals, and fiber! Creamed Spinach ... a German treat! I'm sharing two recipes. The second one is what I do when I'm in a REAL HURRY!
Try the variations given in the hints below the recipes. You're sure to find one way of how to cook spinach that pleases your taste buds!
One very common way to serve this dish is to combine it on a plate with boiled potatoes, hard boiled eggs and mustard sauce. A really quick and easy dinner.
Think of Popeye! He knew what was good for him! After all, spinach is a good source of niacin and zinc and a very good source of dietary fiber. It also has protein, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Copper and Manganese ... to name a few!
Yes, Popeye knew a thing or two about eating healthy!
After a very healthy dinner, there's always room for dessert! Especially if that dessert contains fruit ... more healthy benefits! Just ignore the whipped cream, if necessary :)
