Creamed Spinach

EatingWell’s updated version of creamed spinach has a low-in-fat cream sauce that’s rich with Parmesan cheese and nutmeg.

Serves 2

Prep Time 20 min

Total Time 20 min.

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup minced shallot, or red onion
  • 10 ounces fresh spinach, tough stems removed
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup low-fat milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoon grated Parmesan or Pecorino Romano cheese

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add shallot (or onion); cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add spinach and cook, stirring, until just wilted, about 2 minutes.

Step 2

Heat butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add flour and cook, stirring, until smooth and bubbling, about 30 seconds. Add milk, nutmeg, salt and pepper; cook, whisking constantly, until thickened, about 1 minute. Stir the spinach into the sauce. Sprinkle with grated cheese and serve.
