I had a request on my  Facebook page, for a healthier creamed spinach recipe.  So I thought I would give it a whirl for MUM.  Because I made the rules for MUM I figured this counted: I have never made creamed spinach nor have I tried it, because I like plain spinach so never wanted to add to it.  Well, thank you to this facebook poster I am glad I accepted this recipe makeover!  I added cauliflower just for fun, and I am in love with my own MUM creation!!  

NOTE:  This recipe was loosely based off of a recipe from Food Network.  

Ingredients:
1 head of Cauliflower, rinsed and cut up.
8-10 ounces of spinach, rinsed and tough stems removed
3 Tablespoons of olive oil
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups reduced fat buttermilk
1 cup 1/2% milk
1/4 cup diced onions
2 cloves of crushed garlic
1 whole egg and 2 egg yolks

Directions:
 -In a medium sauce pan heat the olive oil, then add the garlic, onions and flour.  Mix well
-Add in the buttermilk and milk
-Stir occasionally until the mixture begins to boil then remove from heat.
-Boil the cauliflower and spinach-I boiled both together because I was short on pans Monday night :)
-Drain the spinach and cauliflower, squeeze excess water from the spinach
-Return sauce to heat, add in the egg and egg yolks, stir and heat to a boil
-Add the spinach and cauliflower to the sauce until well mixed
-Remove from heat and serve.



I served this with broiled chicken breasts seasoned in McCormick Grill Mates 25% Less Sodium Montreal Chicken Seasoning
