Ingredients
for
Cream Spinach

  • 700 gram / 1.54 pounds fresh spinach, washed and roughly chopped. We used indigenous dune spinach that is endemic to the Western Cape of South Africa but you can easily replace it with leaf spinach or chard this will have no negative influence on the recipe!

  • 1/2 tsp. granulated vegetable stock (optional - use chicken stock instead)
  • 2 pinches ground nutmeg



Directions

  • Melt butter in a large skillet on medium heat and saute onions till they are soft and beginning to brown, stirring regularly. This should take about 8 to 10 minutes
  • Add garlic and saute for another 2 minutes, stirring frequently
  • Add the spinach and saute for 5 minutes or till the leaves have become soft
  • Sprinkle corn flour over the spinach and stir well
