Recipe Review: Creamed Spinach by Joyful Abode

Sometimes you are blessed. I spent the entire day cleaning and doing some intense shopping. This evening I had a church meeting and got home around 8:00 pm. After unloading the car and checking on all the animals I realized I was HUNGRY! Joyful Abode posted this recipe for Creamed Spinach, and I had all the ingredients, and it was a quick recipe (this is the blessed part). I loved the combination of the cream and nutmeg along with the caramelized onions and spinach. This was an excellent way to cook up a quick dish, I will be making this again...probably tomorrow.

I am going to list my ingredients because the original recipe does not include amounts. I thought mine turned out well, the only change I would make is to let it cool a bit. In the picture it was very hot but as it cooled the sauce really thickened up.

  • 3 T. chopped onion
  • 2 T. olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. pureed garlic
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • dash pepper
  • 2 dashes nutmeg
  • 2 heaping Tbsp. cream, I used my SCD Whipping Cream, unwhipped.
  • 3 c. chopped fresh spinach
Thanks Joyful Abode!


  1. I've never heard of SCD whipping cream! I'll have to check it out. :D

  2. This looks like something that would go well with parmesan cheese. Yum.
