Joe's Garlic Creamed Spinach


Joe's Stone Crab Restaurant on South Beach
 is world famous. They have been a Florida 
landmark for almost 100 years.
 Everybody goes for the amazing stone crab, 
but their sides dishes and key lime pies 
are also very popular.
Here's the recipe for the garlic creamed spinach, 
one of the house specialities.
 Have the ingredients ready because it doesn't take long to prepare.
 Saute the garlic in the hot butter.
 Add the flour and whisk to cook for one minute.
 Add the half and half and cook until thickened.
 Stir in the spinach and seasonings.
 Let simmer for about 10 minutes. 
You can cover it and keep it warm for longer.

2 boxes frozen chopped spinach,  thawed
3 T butter
1 T minced garlic
1 T flour
3/4 C half and half
3/4 t salt
1/2 t nutmeg
1/4 t pepper
Squeeze all the water out of the spinach and set aside.
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan and cook the 
chopped garlic about 1 minute until fragrant.
Whisk in the flour and cook for 1 minute.
Gradually whisk in the half and half and cook until thickened.
Stir in the spinach and seasonings. 
Cook on low for about 10 minutes. 
Save any leftover spinach for Joe's Broiled Tomatoes.
I'll post that next.    

Enjoy!
