Creamed Spinach

Spinach · Butter · Cream · Pine Nuts · Nutmeg

Sauté — Medium-High

For overachievers, start by planting spinach seeds in spring. For the rest of us, start with prewashed baby spinach. Melt some butter over medium heat and add the greens—lots. They cook down to almost nothing. Sauté, stirring, until spinach is totally wilted. Add a few glugs of heavy cream and simmer for another minute or so, until cream thickens. Remove from heat and top with toasted pine nuts and maybe a sprinkle of nutmeg. Popeye will be jealous. 

(When in doubt, add butter and/or salt.)
