  • Ellie Krieger's creamed spinach recipe

    I made this last night using FF half and half rather than milk and evaporated milk. I also used cornstarch to make it gluten free. It was SOOO good.

    2 (10-ounce) packages frozen spinach, thawed
    2 teaspoons olive oil
    2 small shallots, finely chopped (about 1/2 cup)
    4 teaspoons all-purpose flour
    1 1/2 cups 1 percent milk
    1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
    2 tablespoons fat free evaporated milk
    Pinch ground nutmeg
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    Squeeze all of the water from the spinach. In a large pan, heat the oil over a medium heat. Add the shallots and cook, stirring, until softened, about 2 minutes. Add the flour and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Add the milk and broth and cook, scraping up any bits from the bottom of the pan. Bring to a simmer and cook for 2 minutes. Add the spinach and simmer until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the evaporated milk and nutmeg and season to taste with salt and pepper.
