The Third Man: Vienese Creamed Spinach
Creamed...but no cream?
When you check the ingredient list for this version of creamed spinach you may be surprised to find not cream. Instead, milk is thickened with flour and butter. A bit of garlic added at the end gives "kick".
- 2 packages (about 20 oz.) fresh, cleaned spinach
- 2 T Butter
- 2 C Milk
- 3 T Flour
- 1 small Onion
- Salt and Pepper
Bring a pot of water to a boil and then add 2 packages (about 20 oz) of cleaned, fresh spinach.
