Spinach Dish (Spanac)

This is one of my favorite recipes as it’s very easy to make (less than 30 minutes) and it can be used either as a side dish or as a dish of its own.

Usually I prefer to eat it with fries and a fried egg.


  • 2.5 lbs fresh spinach
  • 3 cups milk
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 2-3 minced garlic cloves


You start by boiling water – add the spinach and let it there for no more than 2-3 minutes. Drain the spinach and let it cool for few minutes.

In the meantime, you take a pot and heat 5-6 tablespoons of oil; add the flour and stir the mixture. Once the oil incorporates the flour you add the salt, pepper, milk and keep stirring over heat until it gets to be the same consistency as gravy. You chop and add the spinach along with the minced garlic; you keep stirring over heat for 2-3 more minutes until everything is incorporated.
