Steamed spinach is blended with a rich, creamy sauce that's lightly spiced with nutmeg.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- ground black pepper to taste
- 1 pound fresh spinach
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, mix heavy cream, butter, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Stirring constantly, bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer.
Place spinach in a vegetable steamer, and steam until leaves are wilted. Drain in a colander, pressing out excess water with a large spoon.
Coarsely chop spinach in a food processor, and gradually stir into the heavy cream mixture. Briefly return to boiling, then remove from heat.
