Re: "creamed" spinach?

Karen, here's one from Lorna Sass' Short-Cut Vegetarian.  You can change the
seasonings as you like.  I've served it as a side dish and as a sauce for
pasta (with Italian spices instead of the dill).


      Title: Bean-Creamed Spinach
 Categories: Vegetables, Beans, Fast food, Fat-free
      Yield: 4 servings

      2 tb Water
      1 c  Onions, coarsely, chopped
  1 3/4 c  Cooked white beans or 1 15 oz. can, drained
     10 pk Frozen chopped spinach
      1 c  Water
      1 tb Instant veg. stock powder
      2 ts Dried dill or 1/8 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
    1/2 ts Salt, or to taste
      2 tb Freshly squeezed lemon juice
           Freshly ground bl pepper

  Heat the water in a medium saucepan.  Saute the onions for 1 minute,
  stirring frequently.  Add the beans, spinach, water, stock powder, dill,
  and salt and bring to a boil over high heat.  Cover and cook over medium
  heat for 5 minutes.

  Break up the block of spinach with a fork and stir well.  Cook until the
  spinach is tender, 3 tp 5 minutes.  Puree the mixture in a blender.

  If the creamed spinach seems too thick, thin slightly with lemon juice,
  which will sharpen the flavors, or with water.  Season with pepper to
  taste.  Depending upon the consistency, serve either in small bowls or on
