2 T. butter
2 oz. yellow onion
16 oz. frozen chopped spinach
1 c. water
3 oz. cream cheese
1/3 c. heavy cream
Dash salt and pepper
INDIAN VERSION: Add 1 tsp. my Garam Masala spice blend, ½ tsp. grated ginger root, ½ c. chopped cilantro, and ½ seeded jalapeno chopped and paneer cheese cubes (if you know how to make it or can buy frozen at an Indian grocery).
DIRECTIONS: Sliver up the onion very thin or chop finely. Melt butter in skillet and saute onion over medium heat in non-stick skillet. Add spinach and water, cover and simmer just until spinach is done (about 5 minutes). Drain off any remaining water. Now dot the surface with cream cheese and stir in to melt. If making the Indian version, add all spices and jalapeno pepper now. Stir. Lower heat to lowest setting and add cream. Simmer uncovered for 2-3 minutes to allow flavors to blend. Sometimes I pop it into a 350º oven for 15-20 minutes, but that is not actually necessary. The dish shown in the pic above WAS baked in the oven a bit. Great with grilled kebab, chicken or fish. Mmm Mmm Mmm. I just love this stuff!
