• 1/2 large bunch spinach
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp pure vegetable oil
  • white sauce
I remember this one time as a child when my grandmother came to visit us. She made this delicious creamed spinach for us. Before her visit I used to despise spinach but after eating it I was sold over and up until now I’m still sold! This is my effort of trying to replicate what she did and it’s a pretty good one if I should say so myself! It went down well with everyone. In this recipe I used white sauce to create the “creamed” effect. Learn how to make white sauce- CLICK HERE.
