GV comments: This recipe comes from White House Chef Cristeta Comerford who developed this recipe for the Obamas. It's a clever way of creating a creamy texture by pureeing some of the spinach rather than adding butter and cream to chopped or whole spinach. I even make mine without oil, resulting in No-Cream No-Oil Creamed Spinach -- a mouthful. This is a great side dish and can be served alongside many main dishes and other side dishes. It's a wonderful way to help those who don't eat enough greens to get a significant amount in one sitting. 

Timing: About 20 minutes

Nutrition: Mostly whole-food (or completely whole-food unprocessed if you skip the oil)

Gluten-free
