Spinach, the Power Food!

SpinachMay’s Cooks in the Kitchen submission time is here. This month’s food challenge: spinach, yum! As the Popeye the Sailor Man song danced in my head, I waffled between how best to represent this wonderful power food. Following is my entry of cream spinach.

This simple recipe calls for only a few ingredients and takes little time to prepare. Here is what you will need — fresh spinach, chopped onions, garlic, cream cheese, olive oil, lemon, salt and pepper to taste.
