Creamed spinach

Preparation time : 10 mins Cooking time : 15 mins Servings : 3
  • 200 g baby spinach
  • 50 g butter
  • 175 ml crème fraîche
  • 15 ml peanut butter
  • 45 ml grated Parmesan
  • salt and pepper

Set a pot of water to boil on the stove.


Once the water is boiling, place the spinach briefly in the water, just for a few seconds.


You just want the leaves to wilt.


Drain the spinach through a sieve, and shake off any excess water.


Melt the butter in a pan, stir in the spinach and sauté for a min.


Add the crème fraîche, peanut butter and Parmesan and increase the heat.


Once the sauce thickens, season and serve immediately.
