One of my favorite dishes is the garlic creamed spinach from Joe’s Stone Crab in Miami. So, I decided to recreate it… Here’s the recipe:

Creamed Garlic Spinach (serves 4):


  • 20 oz. fresh spinach
  • 3 tbsp. salted butter
  • 1 tbsp. minced garlic (I prefer whole cloves, but minced is what the recipe calls for)
  • 1 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper


  1. Wash spinach and put in pot w/ a little salted water.
  2. Cook spinach for about 2 minutes.
  3. Strain spinach and put back in pot.
  4. Melt butter in a medium sauté pan.
  5. Add garlic and cook until soft (about 1 minute).
  6. Add flour and whisk under medium heat.
  7. Whisk until mixture is smooth and add to spinach pot.
  8. Gradually add heavy cream and mix into spinach.
  9. Add nutmeg, salt and pepper.
  10. Enjoy!

This was a tester... obviously doesn't serve 4.
