2 people


20 minutes



– 18 oz (500g) fresh spinach – 1 tablespoon unsalted butter – 2 cloves garlic, minced – 1 cup yellow onion, diced – 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour – 1/2 cup milk – 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream – 1/3 teaspoon salt – 1/2 cup shredded cheese

Step 1

 Rinse and remove the stems from spinach. Bring water to a boil in a pot, cook spinach for under 1 minute and drain them with a colander. Transfer the spinach to a bowl of cold water and cool down for 2 minutes. Drain and squeeze out the excess water from spinach as much as possible. Chop the spinach into small pieces and set aside.

Step 2

Melt the butter in a large skillet (or a non-stick frying pan) with medium-high heat. Add garlic and onion, saute until golden brown and aromatic. Add all-purpose flour and stir well.

Step 3

 Pour in milk and heavy cream, stirring constantly. Simmer down the sauce for 2 minutes until it thickens.

Step 4

Lower the heat, add spinach, half of the shredded cheese and salt. Keep stirring until the cheese melt. Then, turn off the heat immediately.

Step 5

Transfer the dish to a baking dish and evenly sprinkle the rest of the shredded cheese on top. Set up the oven to broil, bake the creamed spinach for 3 to 5 minutes until golden brown.

Step 6

Remove dish from the oven and serve immediately.
