10 oz chopped frozen spinach, thawed, water squeezed out
1/2 cup(s) fat-free evaporated milk
1 tsp dehydrated onion flakes, or minced onion
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp table salt, or to taste
1/8 tsp black pepper, or to taste
In a blender or food processor, combine spinach and evaporated milk; puree until smooth.
Transfer mixture to a medium saucepan and add minced onion and garlic powder; set pan over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until thick, about 5 minutes; season to taste with salt and pepper. Yields about 1/2 cup per serving.

For a delicate flavor and brilliant green color, try this recipe with fresh baby spinach. Steam 12 ounces of baby spinach leaves in a steamer over boiling water for 2 minutes. Drain and proceed with the recipe. You can also use 1 chopped shallot instead of the onion flakes.
