Directions

Print
  1. Combine milk, spinach liquid and garlic in a 1-quart microwave-safe measuring cup or small bowl covered with a saucer, and microwave (or heat slowly in a medium saucepan) until very hot and steamy. Let stand for 5 to 10 minutes to soften garlic.
  2. Melt butter in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Whisk in flour. Add hot milk mixture all at once, then whisk until smooth. Stir in spinach; cook until sauce is thick and bubbly and spinach is tender but still green, about 5 minutes. Stir in cheese, nutmeg, and a generous sprinkling of salt and pepper. Serve hot.

Footnotes

  • Make-ahead tip
  • After adding spinach to sauce the mixture can be turned onto a large rimmed baking sheet to cool quickly, then transferred to a covered container and refrigerated up to 2 days. Warm slowly over low heat. Stir in cheese and season with nutmeg and a generous sprinkling of salt and pepper. Serve hot.

I only had skim milk onhand, so I added a couple tablespoons of whipped cream cheese to give it a creamier texture. I think the lack of "zing" a few have noticed comes from using frozen rather t...
