Final Notes for the Creamed Spinach Recipe with Sour Cream
➡️ Spinach is one of the healthiest vegetables that we can use for cooking tasty food. I know that not everyone would agree with the phrase “tasty spinach”, but I think that the reluctance of some is the result of not eating a spinach recipe that would make them lick their lips with pleasure!
➡️ By the way, many people in the US know this dish as spinach dip, not as creamed spinach. In my opinion, it’s about the same thing, so I’m not going to get into a debate about the name of the food.
➡️ Cooking creamed spinach with sour cream is very easy, especially when you’re going to use chopped frozen spinach. Of course, if you have fresh spinach on hand, you can use it, but it must be boiled and chopped beforehand, so it will take a little longer.
➡️ The idea for cooking creamed spinach with sour cream comes from France, a country that is considered the cradle of refined cuisine. Precisely because the spinach itself does not have a pleasant taste, the French have invented recipes in which it is combined with milk, butter, and sour cream, which, along with various spices, make the spinach dishes extremely delicious.
➡️ My recipe for cooking creamed spinach with sour cream is very easy and takes a short time. In about 15-20 minutes you can prepare spinach dip so delicious that even children who stubbornly refuse to eat spinach will ask for a second portion! Therefore, I recommend you try the recipe as soon as possible!
➡️ Since it’s very easy, I don’t have many secrets to share about this spinach recipe. What is important to get the best results when cooking creamed spinach is to use very finely chopped spinach. The coarse texture is not pleasing to spinach, so I recommend that you do not use whole spinach leaves, whether they are fresh or frozen.
➡️ Most often, I use a very simple seasoning for this spinach recipe. If you want a taste with richer flavors, you can flavor the food with some ground white pepper and nutmeg powder, both being used in French cuisine in the most refined recipes.
➡️ And if you want the recipe to please the most fastidious gourmet, sprinkle a little grated cheese on top of the food when you serve it, this way you could even win a cooking contest with your creation!
