Ingredients

  • 2 (10-ounce) packages frozen spinach, thawed
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 small shallots, finely chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 4 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups 1 percent milk
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons fat free evaporated milk
  • Pinch ground nutmeg
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Squeeze all of the water from the spinach. In a large pan, heat the oil over a medium heat. Add the shallots and cook, stirring, until softened, about 2 minutes. Add the flour and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Add the milk and broth and cook, scraping up any bits from the bottom of the pan. Bring to a simmer and cook for 2 minutes. Add the spinach and simmer until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the evaporated milk and nutmeg and season to taste with salt and pepper.
