Eat Your Spinach

March 28, 2024

Poor Popeye! He was relegated to eating canned spinach for which I can find no words of praise. Instead he could have enjoyed fresh, tender spinach, one of the first vegetables to appear in the spring. Since spinach is almost 90% water, it is best to wilt down the leaves and not boil them which only add more water and will result in a loss of nutrients.Use this no added water  technique for cooking it and make this elegant looking and delicious tasting creamed spinach side dish.The large amount of spinach called for in this dish seems excessive but trust me, it isn’t. Creamed spinach is a side dish that goes with everything, and is even delicious smeared on a slice of toasted sourdough bread.
