Creamed spinach is a delicious and comforting accompaniment to a piece of simply grilled meat.
500g spinach, thick stalks removed and washed
150ml double cream
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Bring a pan of salted water to the boil and cook the spinach for 2-3 minutes until tender then drain in a colander, refresh under a cold tap and squeeze out any excess water.
Blend in a food processor – as smooth or as coarse as you wish. You can get the spinach to this stage in advance, then finish it at the last minute.
Simmer the cream in a saucepan until it's reduced by about half, then stir in the spinach, season and cook on a low heat for a minute or so, stirring every so often until the spinach is hot. Serve immediately.
