    Creamed Spinach

     A gloriously rich side.

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 15 minutes
    • Total time: 25 minutes

    Serves: 2


    • 260g pack spinach
    • 30g unsalted butter
    • 1 shallot, very finely sliced
    • 1 garlic clove, very finely sliced
    • 1 tbsp plain flour
    • 6 tbsp whole milk
    • 2 tbsp Philadelphia soft cheese
    • 1 tsp lemon juice
    • pinch freshly grated nutmeg
    • 2 tbsp parmigiano reggiano


    1. Put the spinach in a colander, pour over just-boiled water to wilt, and refresh under cold water. Wring out, pat dry on kitchen paper, roughly chop and set aside.

    2. Heat the butter in a frying pan set over a medium-low heat. Sauté the shallot and garlic very gently for 8 minutes, until soft. Stir in the flour; cook for 2 minutes. Pour in the milk 1 tbsp at a time, until loose. Stir in the soft cheese, until the sauce is thick.

    3. Preheat the grill to high. Stir the spinach, lemon juice, nutmeg and 1 tbsp parmesan into the sauce; season. Transfer to a small ovenproof dish, sprinkle with the remaining 1 tbsp parmesan and grill for 2 minutes.
