Creamed Spinach Sauce

Creamed Spinach Sauce

Serves 4     Preparation:  5 min.        Cooking: 30 min.        Total: 35 min.

  • 1/4 Lb fresh spinach leaves , trimmed and rinsed well.
  • 1 Cup cream , plus more as needed.
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg (optional).

Bring a large pot of water to a boil, and salt it. Plunge the spinach into the boiling water, and cook for no more than a minute; transfer to an ice bath with a slotted spoon. Drain well, and squeeze with your hands to remove as much water as possible.

Put the cream and spinach in a blender or food processor, and purée. Transfer the mixture to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the butter, and sprinkle with salt, pepper and nutmeg if you’re using it. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture gently bubbles and thickens; add more cream for a thinner sauce. Taste, and adjust the seasoning and serve hot.
