Creamed Spinach is a holiday staple around my house. My mom makes it every Thanksgiving, Christmas, and sometimes Easter. I've been helping her with it for years, but it's one of those dishes she doesn't have a recipe for. This year we noted what we used so I could share it with you. We used to make it with wheat four, but when I had to go gluten free we switched to rice flour. It tastes the same. I hope your family enjoys it as much as ours.
4 packages frozen chopped spinach
1 small onion, chopped
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons rice flour
1 1/4 cups milk
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon sugar
1) Cook the spinach according to the directions on the package. Drain well.
2) Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and saute until soft.
3) Add the flour to the onion mixture, whisk until smooth.
4) Slowly add the milk, stirring constantly. Add the salt and pepper.
5) Keep stirring and allow to thicken slightly, about three minutes.
6) Stir in the cooked spinach and sugar. Heat throughout and serve.
