This cold weather has made me a little “eh” about salad. I still want to eat those greens though.
I have been making creamed spinach a lot for lunch this winter. Homemade creamed spinach takes just a few minutes to make, it’s comforting and it is a great way to eat a lot of greens. This pasta bowl of creamed spinach is an entire bag of spinach. Spinach really cooks down.
Creamed spinach with goat cheese is just the best. It really adds the perfect touch to this dish.
I love this spinach alone, but I also love to pair this with creamy polenta. ( another dish that takes just 5 minutes to make)
Goat Cheese Creamed Spinach
1 bag of spinach
2 large tablespoon of creamy goat cheese
1/8 chopped onion- or 1 chopped shallot
1 teaspoon of corn starch
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 -3 tablespoons of milk
Method: In a saucepan over low heat, cook onions and olive oil until the onions are transparent. add spinach and cook down the spinach. Once spinach is cooked down, add corn starch goat cheese and milk. stir and cook over medium heat for 1-2 more minutes. remove from heat and serve.
This was so good and a great way to get those extra greens in this winter!!! Adding parmesan cheese would also be awesome!
