The queen of all sides! Super creamy and easy to make.
While this is an easy recipe, you can burn the spinach quite easily. Always cook over medium heat and whisk all the time.
I love fresh produce and mostly cook with fresh vegetables, but sometimes I do go for frozen. When it comes to creamed spinach I always use frozen, and it’s the only frozen vegetable I always have in my freezer. Ideally more than one bag.
About garlic powder: In this particular recipe, I prefer powder over fresh garlic. I don’t want to bite into a tiny piece of garlic when I eat creamed spinach and the only way I can prevent that is by using garlic powder. If you’re not as picky as me, feel free to use fresh garlic.
To make more servings, double the ingredients. To make 2 servings, keep the whole egg but add less cream, spinach and salt.
Although creamed spinach is a side, I love to serve it with its own side which is a hard boiled egg.
Creamed spinach can be made hours ahead and then warmed in the microwave (or on the stove) right before serving.
