I could eat this every day, it is one of my favorites. If I don't have time to cook I just take a box of frozen spinach from the freezer and in 10 minutes I have a great lunch or dinner. I always have frozen spinach, eggs and milk at home. You can use cream or milk for this recipe, I usually make it with milk.
1 lb fresh spinach cooked, well drained and chopped or 1 box frozen spinach
2 tablespoons oil
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 cup milk
Heat oil in a small saucepan over low heat; add the crushed garlic and sauté garlic in butter for about 1 minute. Do not let garlic burn or it will be bitter.
Add the flour to make a roux.
Add salt and pepper and heat until mixture bubbles, stirring constantly.
Gradually add the milk stirring constantly until the mixture is smooth and thick.
Add the chopped spinach into sauce and season with extra salt or pepper if needed, or add more crushed garlic.
Serve with eggs and fresh bread.
