Creamed spinach with mushrooms

  • Time cooking time: 15-20 minutes
  • Yield Serves 6


    3 bunches spinach, each about 3/4 pound
    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
    2 tablespoons butter
    2 ounces shitake mushrooms, stemmed and chopped
    2 tablespoons minced shallots
    3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    1 1/2 cups milk, warmed
    Pinch cayenne pepper


    Wash spinach thoroughly and remove any thick or blemished leaves. Put with boiling water into a large pot or wok.
    Over medium heat, cook, stirring, until just wilted, about 5 minutes. Drain and gently squeeze out excess moisture. Chop, season with salt and pepper, and set aside. You should have about 3 cups.
    Put butter in a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat. When foaming stops add mushrooms and shallots. Cook, covered, until both wilt, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add flour and stir a few minutes, making sure flour is fully incorporated.
    Add milk and bring to a simmer, stirring with a whisk.
    Season with salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper and cook until thickened, about 5 minutes. Add spinach and cook, stirring gently until heated through.
