German Creamed Spinach

Recipe by rocket_j_dawg

My Oma's recipe from the old country. Great for people who hate spinach.

This was a nice base recipe for creamed spinach. I used 1/2 medium onion, 1 large garlic clove, 2 T. flour and lowfat buttermilk. I did not need to simmer for 30 minutes as it thickened up almost immediately. I added a little nutmeg and a bay leaf as well. Perfect consistency and good flavor. Since the recipe does not state how much liquid to use, you will need about 1/2 - 3/4 c. of milk or cream. Lastly, this will NOT serve 6 unless you are having one bite each. I'd say it serves 2-3 people tops. Anyway, thanks for posting your Oma's recipe!
