Creamed spinach is side dish that I recently fell in love with. Last week, I was in South Pacific and the first hotel that I stayed at served an amazing garlic creamed spinach that I just couldn’t stop eating. It’s something very simple that goes with anything.
After I came home, I knew that I had to recreate this dish as I love spinach and spinach is one of the very few vegetables little G would eat.
So I got myself a pack of heavy whipping cream, a box of organic baby spinach and I developed this garlic creamed spinach recipe.
I love how simple it is to make this healthy side dish. It calls for the most basic five (5) ingredients and takes less than 15 minutes.
While many love their creamed spinach to be super soft, I love mine moderately cooked so the spinach still appear vibrant green but perfectly soft and wilted. Try my easy recipe, it’s really amazing!
