“Very quick and easy creamed spinach that tastes great.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook time reflects the total cook time if you boil spinach and it is not already thawed.
  2. Either thaw spinach or you can boil (also fresh may be used I use frozen in this to save on time, you don't have to wash and chop it down.) If boiling spinach drain and rinse under cold water to cool, then take spinach in handfuls and squeeze out all excess water and place in microwave safe bowl. If you thawed the spinach just make sure all excess liquid is squeezed out.
  3. Add the half cup of cream and chicken stock and microwave for 1 minute on high, remove and stir. Add the cream cheese and mix, again cook for one minute on high. Remove from microwave and stir, add the Parmesan in about 3 lots, melting in the microwave after each addition. Finally once cheese has melted just make sure heated through.
  4. This process can also be done on the stove in a saucepan, I just find it quicker in the microwave you can also make this ahead of time as it reheats fine.
