Creamed Mushrooms and Spinach
This creamy spinach and mushroom dish is a perfect cozy comfort food. It is creamy, indulgent and packed with mushrooms and spinach.
It is really tasty and satisfying, quick and easy to make, great for a tasty weeknight dinner. This dish comes together fairly quickly, as it is ready in about 30 minutes, it is perfect for an easy weeknight dinner or weekend brunch. I use button or chestnut mushrooms for this as they have more flavour, but you could add in some wild mushrooms too.
I am a huge spinach and mushroom fan. I really like the creamy, cheesy sauce that is smooth and garlicky and elevated with addition of spinach and mushrooms. My friend Nisha taught me this dish. And while you are cooking this tasty creamy mushroom and spinach dish – your entire house will smell like a top-notch Italian restaurant- all thanks to garlic and cheese. And don’t you just love the smell of garlic being cooked?
At my home, we love this dish with either garlic bread or with rice. Try this recipe once and it will surely become your family favourite.
