Creamed Spinach

Whether it’s a side dish at a steak house or Indian sag paneer, there are few things more comforting than a silky side of creamed spinach.

So when the “naked” baked chicken I made needed a warm, comforting side dish and I hadn’t gone to the grocery store in a few days, I dug around for what I had on hand: a can of spinach, 2 tbs of butter, 2 cloves of garlic, 1/2 cup of heavy cream, a handful of mozzarella and s/p. I had everything I needed for one of the best things that could ever happen to a vegetable.

Here we go!


  • 2 14oz cans of spinach
  • 2 tbs of butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella
  • salt and pepper, onion powder to taste


  1. Melt 2 tbs butter in sauce pan and keep stirring so it doesn’t burn.
  2. Add mixed garlic, keep stirring.
  3. Drain and pour in spinach and stir, stir, stir 2-3 min.
  4. Add seasonings (s/p, onion powder to taste).
  5. Stir in 1/4 cream and you guessed it-keep stirring! (If you want it creamier,
  6. pour in another 1/4 cup heavy cream.
  7. Add in a handful of shredded mozzarella.
  8. Stir for another 5 minutes on medium heat and serve!
