Creamed Spinach

While not entirely traditional, we all thought this version of creamed spinach was delicious, even those of us (namely, our 9 year old) who do not like spinach. I played around with and adjusted things as I went, so the measurements might not be entirely accurate. They should be pretty close though.

Creamed Spinach

  • 2 T. olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lb. frozen, chopped spinach
  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • 1/3 c. grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 t. ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 t. black pepper
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1/4 c. milk, as needed

1. Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Add the frozen spinach and cook until completely thawed, stirring often.

2. Add the cream cheese, Parmesan cheese and seasonings. Stir and cook until cheeses are completely melted. Thin to desired consistency with milk, a few splashes at a time.

3. Serve immediately. Or, for stolen moments style, transfer to a small casserole dish and refrigerate. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, or until heated through.

  1. This is serious comfort food. This looks simple enough that even I can make it. Tomorrow night for sure!
    Thanks, I just love your blog.

  2. yum, I’m dying to try this! Too bad the hubby doesn’t like spinach, maybe if I add enough cheese he’ll go for it!


  3. I saw this post yesterday and decided; “YUM! That is what I’m making for dinner tonight”. So, I did. Turned out rather yummy. MY Hubby absoulutly loves his greens…
    One thing, I think It may have had too much garlic. I didn’t have any fresh and used dried instead. I don’t know… I’ll have to try it again. Also, I didn’t think I had enough spinach to make 1lb. So, I added about two cups of frozen, shredded zucchini to it. Nobody knew and it (same color)and it was a good way to use it up – get it out of the freezer. Thanks for the great meal idea. Love your blog!
