METHOD

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon Flora Buttery in a large saucepan. Add the spinach, cover and cook for 1-2 minutes, shaking the pan every now and then. Squeeze out the excess water from the leaves. Chop the spinach finely, and set aside.

  2. Melt the remaining Flora Buttery in a saucepan. Add the onion, and cook until just soft but not brown. Add in the flour, stirring it together to form a paste. Slowly whisk in the milk and cook until slightly thickened. Stir in the Parmesan and Hellmann’s Mayonnaise with a touch of Garlic. Add in the spinach and nutmeg and serve in warmed dish.
