  • 2 pounds fresh spinach, washed thoroughly
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup whole milk


  1. Cook spinach in a large pot with 1/4 inch water until steam has collapsed leaves, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain, and squeeze out liquid. Coarsely chop.

  2. In a medium skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Whisk in flour, 1 teaspoon salt, and some pepper. Stir for 1 minute. Whisk in milk, and simmer until slightly thickened, about 1 minute. Fold in chopped spinach.
