As a side dish, it is a pleasure to put on the table, so today we want to take care of the preparation. 

I wish you good luck and a good appetite!

3. Prepare Cream Spinach, the Essentials at a Glance

Popeye has bought the green vegetables dozens of times and has always been big and strong… so that you can simply put the wonderful side dish on the table, I have summarized the most important points here:

Important: Packaged leaf spinach is often washed in chlorinated water, so it has a longer shelf life. Therefore, it is essential to wash it again in cold water at home!

… Blubb spinach tastes homemade absolutely delicious.

Mixed spinach leaves need binding, otherwise liquid and vegetables separate. Outlet spinach looks terrible and does not taste good. For a good result, use cold-mixed starch. © Foodfotograf Thomas Sixt
