A dish that I remember as a child and that was also my children’s favourite is the quick creamed spinach recipe, with milk, bread crumbs and served with a fried egg. If your children do not want to eat spinach, I urge you to cook this recipe and you will see that it will have an effect, they will love it.
If the spinach is not washed, we put it in a sieve and wash it under a stream of cold water and let it drain. Finely chop the garlic cloves or whoever wants can pass them through a garlic press.
In a saucepan, I heat the sunflower oil in which I put to fry the garlic. Fry for just a minute, then add the spinach, gradually, because it doesn’t fit all at once. Add the milk (I only put 100 ml the first time) and let it simmer for about 5 minutes.
Using a hand blender, I mixed the spinach leaves until I got a paste. I add the breadcrumbs, I mixed with a wooden spoon and let it simmer for another five minutes.
Now gradually add the rest of the milk, depending on how the breadcrumbs absorb the liquid and how thick you want the mash to be. Season with sea salt, sugar, lemon juice and vegetable mix for soups.
I recommend serving hot with fried eggs, which is the most common option in our area.
If you use bread soaked in milk, put the bread first on the spinach leaves and mix them together with the hand blender.You can use frozen spinach instead of fresh spinach, cook identically.
