Epinards à la Crème / French Style Creamed Spinach

Creamed spinach is quite a famous dish which is consumed atleast once a week in french school canteens, eventhough the french kids hate this creamed spinach very much, most of the french people hate this creamed spinach to the core when they were kid, each and everyone have their own version of story behind the reason for hating this creamed spinach...I tasted this creamed spinach before few years ago in a french friend's house when we were invited at her place for a lunch..I immediately fallen in love with this french creamed spinach dish which is served along with meats, grilled fishes or simply with pastas..Today i prepared this creamed spinach for our lunch and i clicked immediately since i was hosting AWED this month with french cuisine as theme..Needless to say that this creamed spinach goes to AWED-French hosted by me, event by DK..

Creamed spinach

1/2kg Spinach (stalks removed)
3tbsp Double cream
1tsp Butter
Pepper powder
Nutmeg powder

Heat the butter, add immediately the spinach leaves, sauté the spinach for few minutes, add the salt,double cream and cook for few minutes..Now either u can grind the cooked spinach as bit coarse paste or u can enjoy them without grinding also, but i went for grinding..

Finally spice the grounded creamed spinach with pepper powder and nutmeg powder..Serve with grilled chicken thighs, meats or grilled fish..
