Creamed Spinach And Artichokes Recipe


2 tablespoons butter or oil
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup milk or cream
4 ounces cream cheese (low fat is ok), room temperature
1/2 cup parmigiano reggiano (parmesan), grated
2 (10 ounce) packages frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1 (14 ounce) can artichoke hearts, coarsely chopped
salt, pepper and cayenne to taste


1. Melt the butter in a pan over medium heat, add the onion and cook until tender, about 5-7 minutes.

2. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about a minute.

3. Sprinkle in the flour, mix and cook for another minute.

4. Add the milk and cook, stirring, until the sauce thickens, about 2-3 minutes.

5. Add the cream cheese and parmesan and cook until they melt.

6. Mix in the spinach and artichokes, cook until warmed and season with salt, pepper and cayenne to taste.

Option 1: Use fresh spinach! Cook it in a large pan with 1/4 cup water until wilted, drain it, squeeze it dry and coarsely chop it. (I put the wilted spinach in a sieve and squeeze it against the sieve with a large spoon so that I don't have to wait for it to cool enough to use my hands.)
Option 2: Replace the spinach with kale or other green leaf.
Option 3: Add bacon!
Option 4: Top with mozzarella and bake until melted.
Option 5: Add some mayonnaise.
