READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by SherryKaraoke

I created this recipe one evening when I wanted something just a little bit special to serve my husband. It's so simple, yet tastes so very rich.

I was very hopeful for this recipe, but it was a "fail" for me. :o( It's only my fault for not knowing that if you put too much heat to yogurt it will curdle. I used Greek yogurt and added it to my cooked fresh spinach, THEN (about 15 seconds later) turned the heat off. I was bummed because creamed spinach is one of my favorites and this ended up like spinach with cottage cheese mixed in. I'll try again, though!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. I keep drained yogurt available in my fridge all the time.
  2. I use a coffee filter and a wire strainer.
  3. I usually drain it over night, but even a half hour makes a big difference.
  4. Once you drain the yogurt, it becomes very thick and much less tart.
  5. Cook spinach according to package directions.
  6. While it cooks, saute chopped onions until slightly browned.
  7. Drain spinach well and combine with all other ingredients while still hot.
