  • 16 ounces baby spinach about 12 cups, uncooked
  • cup butter
  • ½ white onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 4 tablespoons parmesan cheese shredded
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper


  • Heat a skillet over medium heat with a tablespoon of butter. Working in batches, add spinach, cooking for about 5 minutes or until cooked down. Set aside.
  • Add butter to pan. Add onion, cook for 5 minutes or until translucent. Add flour, whisking for 2 minutes or until slightly browned (adds a nutty flavor).
  • Whisk in heavy cream and milk. Bring to a boil, and cook for 5 minutes or until thickened. Stir in parmesan cheese, black pepper, and nutmeg.
  • Add spinach to cream sauce to heat. Serve hot.


If using frozen spinach, defrost in a colander under warm water. Squeeze out excess moisture, then wrap in paper towel or cheese cloth to absorb any remaining moisture.
