Spinach with polenta


A delicious full of vitamins dish.



* 1 kg spinach
* 3 spoons flour
* salt, pepper
* 1 coffee cup of milk
* 2 spoons butter
* 2 cloves of garlic


Clean and wash the spinach. Boil it until dries out a bit. Add milk, butter and flour. Mix well to incorporate. Cut the garlic into small pieces and throw it over the spinach. Boil some 5 more minutes. Hint: Do not boil the spinach for too long. It is said to lose its vitamins. If you are looking for an iron-rich source, try out the less famous nettles.

To be served with polenta. Can be eaten cold.

(The Romanian name of the dish: Spanac cu mamaliguta)
