Better Homes & Gardens Vegetable Cookbook: Spinach Delicious

vegetable cook bookThanksgiving is fast approaching! Were you invited to a last-minute Friendsgiving and need to bring a dish? Did you burn the green bean casserole and need a quick substitution?

Well, I’ve got a perfect dish for you. You probably already have all of the ingredients in your refrigerator. It’s Spinach Delicious!

I made this last year to go with the Stuffed Beef Heart and it was a big hit (especially with Todd)–but I forgot to take a picture of it, so I didn’t include it. I actually forgot to post about it twice. But anyhoo, by popular demand, here is the recipe for Spinach Delicious from the Better Homes & Gardens Vegetable Cook Book.

Really, this couldn’t be any easier. This is done in all of 10 minutes.

I liken it to a lighter, simpler alternative to traditional creamed spinach. With a bit of a kick (a full 2 tbsp of horseradish! BH&G, you’re crazy!).

Here it is with two of my favorite things–broiled lamb chops and twice-baked potatoes:

It ain’t fancy. But it’s yummy.  And would go will with all types of meat. I highly recommend this little dish.

Fingers crossed that it doesn’t happen, but please keep Spinach Delicious in mind on Thanksgiving in case any vegetable emergencies arise.

    The term “vegetable emergencies” makes me smile. 🙂 Also, aren’t Better Homes and Gardens vintage cookbooks are the best?

  2. Hey, I often have vegetable emergencies! And I often have spinach in my freezer! But I might not wait for one! 🙂

  3. This just popped into my head, off subject – have you been over to see Meta’s 1942 meals? I think you’ll get a kick out of her blog based on Meta Given’s Encyclopedia of Modern cooking.

  4. Mmmm – spinach and horseradish? YeS!

    I triple this recipe for our family of four, and we never have any left over. It is one of my favorites of childhood.
