Spinach with Yogurt Sauce

We love going to the city for a special evening from time to time. One of the restaurants that we enjoy has the very best creamed spinach on their menu, however it it very rich, and I just know it has real cream making it a very high fat and calorie count. I wanted to serve a similar spinach however did not want all that extra count.  We just loved this recipe and I wanted to share it with you today.

  1. I sure do like spinach...and sure do like it with yogurt!

  2. Miz Helen, I do love the good old fashioned creamed spinach every now-and-then, but concerned about the cholesterol so I would certainly opt for the yogurt addition instead of the heavy cream...but I would cut down on the vinegar to 1 Tbsp. instead of the half a cup...otherwise, the garlic flavor and the nutmeg sounds such a perfect addition! Thanks for sharing your lightened up version:)

    1. Hi Elisabeth,
      I sure am glad you caught the vinegar, oops, it is supposed to be 1/4 cup, my fingers get to going to fast sometimes. It is really a great side dish.
      Thanks Elisabeth!
