Kent made this dish as part of our Valentine's dinner last week. If you like spinach even a little bit, you will love this recipe! The shallot gives it so much flavor! It made a wonderful side dish and would be easy to double if you wanted to make it for a dinner party. I can't wait until we have it again!
1 (9 oz) bag of spinach
1 large shallot, finely chopped
1 tbsp flour
3/4 cup milk
2 tbsp vegetable oil
salt and pepper to taste
Wilt spinach by placing it in a covered pan on medium heat and adding a little salt. After the spinach has wilted, squeeze out any excess moisture and set aside. Saute the shallot in oil until they become clear (2-3 minutes on medium high heat). Add salt and pepper. Add the tablespoon of flour and mix it in thoroughly. Allow the shallot/flour mixture to cook for about a minute. Add in the milk and drop the heat to low. Cook for 3 or 4 minutes to allow the mixture to thicken. Take it off the heat and mix it into the spinach.
