Creamed Spinach

1 pound fresh spinach
3 large cloves Garlic, minced
1 T olive oil
1 T flour
1/3 cup cream or whole milk

Clean spinach in a large bowl of cold water. Remove the cleaned spinach, do not pour it out or you will our the sand back on the spinach but lift out the clean spinach with your sands.

Cook the spinach in a large pot of boiling water for 2-3 minutes or until it is wilted down and dark green. Remove the spinach and submerse it in a large pot of ice water to spot the cooking and to set the color.

squeeze the water out of the spinach and chop it until it is finely chopped.

it a cold saute pan add the oil and the garlic, heating it up slowly. Add flour to garlic and oil and cook stirring for just a few seconds, when it starts to get bubbly and smell nutty add in the spinach and cream. Stir to mix and heat to thicken, just until it starts to bubble.

Thank you so much Deb.

I love this dish but don't eat it often because it had so much fat and calories.
