Just made this recipe - my husband isn't a huge spinach person HOWEVER he LOVED this too!!! AND I have cholesterol issues so the greek yogurt was perfect :-) I've always thought of creamed spinach as a 'no no' since it usually has so much cheese in it - not so any longer, yeah!!! Easy to make and good for you too - would highly recommend, doesn't get much better than that! Thanks!

It has a different taste then what we usually expect for creamed spinach. For us the tang of the yogurt didn't work.

So good and easy! I love spinach, but have a hard time getting my hubby to eat it, but he devoured it! I was skeptical since it didn't have any cheese in it, but it doesn't need it at all! I used fresh spinach and added it with the broth and wilted it for a few minutes. Yum! Update: This is a normal side for us now. I have added even more flavor by adding 1/2 an onion and garlic. Yum!

The recipe was easy and quick. However,it is very bland. That said, will probably make again.

This recipe was a hit with the whole family... including my 10, 8, and 5 year olds! Super nutritious to boot!

Acceptable as a healthier substitute for the usual cream base. Better for you, for sure, but don't expect it to taste as delicious as the normal kind.

This was really good, I did use 1TBSP of coconut oil instead of the butter and sauteed a sweet onion and garlic before I did the flour. I will be making this again!
