As a child, I adored creamed spinach and as a child, my hubby deplored creamed spinach. Over the years, I rarely make the dish for obvious reasons. When I was planning one of my meals, I had a few particular vegetables to use up. One was two containers of fresh baby spinach. I was determined to make use of it and I reverted to the once beloved Creamed Spinach. I have been checking Joy Bauer for almost all of my recipes. I keep getting winners so why not take advantage of this good situation.
I am posting the recipes that I find online as well as in the book. I think, it is unfair to print many recipes from a chef's book. I would guess it is against the copyright law but I have not looked it up. Once the recipe goes online, then unless it says differently, I would hope that using it online with credit given to the website would be appropriate.
This recipe calls for garlic and normally, I eliminate garlic from all recipes, so hubby can eat it but this time, knowing his aversion to the dish, I put tons of garlic in (OK, I am exaggerating.)
Even with the Tofutti cream cheese, this turned out creamy and tasty....yummy garlic.
