Creamed Spinach

This is a straight forward side dish which goes well with steak or slow roasted beef.


  • 1 red onion, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 25g butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped
  • 250g frozen spinach
  • 100ml double cream
  • 1/2 tsp of freshly grated nutmeg
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat the butter, onion and garlic in a saucepan over a medium heat until the onion starts to soften. This should be about 10 minutes.
  2. Add the frozen spinach and put a lid over the saucepan. Leave to heat through for about 5 minutes.
  3. Remove the lid and stir well. Keep stirring every couple of minutes until most of the water has evaporated, about 10 minutes.
  4. Right before you're ready to serve, add the cream, nutmeg, salt and pepper and mix well.
  5. Leave to heat through and then pour into a pre-heated serving bowl.

Serves 4.
