|20 oz fresh or frozen spinach
If the spinach is fresh, pick off the larger stems and wash out the sand and dirt.
In a pot sufficiently huge to hold all that spinach, bring 2 c water to a rapid boil. Add
spinach. Simmer, covered, for about 20 minutes. Drain; blend or chop.
That was the long part. Indeed, if you're using frozen spinach this is
really quick. Just thaw it by setting the box in hot water for a few minutes.
about 2-4 Tbls chopped onion (optional)
1 T flour
1/2 c pine nuts
1/2 c cream
1 tsp sugar
|Heat oil over medium heat in skillet, add onion. Cook for 1 minute or
until golden. Stir in flour. Add pine nuts. Slowly stir in cream and add sugar. Add
spinach; stir and cook for 3 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
