In this video, you’ll see how to make a quick-and-easy creamed spinach recipe that’s also a little bit lighter than regular creamed spinach. You’ll start with fresh spinach. (The bagged, pre-washed kind is a smart choice for this recipe.) The key to success here is to drain as much liquid as possible from the sautéed spinach. Then it’s just a quick matter of mixing your chopped sautéed spinach with spices, lemon zest, and minced shallots in a little butter and cream on the stove. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John’s Fast and Easy Creamed Spinach. Enjoy this creamed spinach with its soul mate, grilled steak. It’s also a great side dish for a simple weeknight meal. Give it a try!
