Serves 4
Creamed spinach is traditionally served in South African steak houses as a vegetable side. My family’s favourite!

You will need

1 bunch of swiss chard or bag of baby spinach
1 x 200 ml Ina Paarman’s Ready to Serve Mushroom Sauce
Ina Paarman’s Lemon & Black Pepper Seasoning

Ina’s Tip

Instead of wilting the spinach in a saucepan, cook it in a microsteamer in the microwave.


Wash the spinach well in cold water to remove all possible grains of sand. Place the wet leaves into a saucepan over medium heat. Cover with a lid and wilt the spinach for 5 minutes. There is enough water clinging to the leaves to prevent it from burning.

Chop the wilted spinach in a processor. Add the cold Sauce and blend in with a few on/off pulses in the processor. Season to taste. Reheat in the microwave and serve.



Use Ina Paarman’s Ready to Serve Cheese Sauce in place of Mushroom Sauce.
