|'Creamed' Spinach ~ Made with Greek yogurt & bacon bits. I just doctor-up basic fresh cooked spinach ~ it's such a quick, easy & low fat way to enjoy this traditional side dish.|
I prefer to cook my spinach from fresh & usually just buy it in the pre-washed bags. It's just too easy to follow the cooking directions on the bag ~ then just add a little butter/salt/pepper & we have a wonderful side dish in minutes. Sometimes I'll doctor-up the cooked spinach (either fresh or frozen) & add a little bit extra ~ usually some onion powder, bacon bits & Greek yogurt. I'll give it all a good stir, add an extra dollop of Greek yogurt & then we have a quick and easy 'Creamed' Spinach that is really, really tasty & much lower in fat and calories than a traditional creamed spinach.
I've already written a lot of posts about how much I like to use spinach in different ways ~ in green smoothies, in Indian food, as well as in soup, salads & pasta dishes. I really think this super green food is so versatile ~ just type in the word spinach in my 'Search this blog' area & check out all the different ways I've cooked with this jolly green giant of the veggie world. :)
