Classic creamed spinach is laced with butter and heavy cream, but we’ve revised the concept to create this easy version that gets its taste and tang from low-fat yogurt and lemon zest.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 large shallot, chopped (½ cup)
  • 1 16-oz. pkg. frozen chopped spinach, thawed but not drained
  • ¾ cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1½ tsp. grated lemon zest
  • 1½ tsp. minced fresh rosemary

Preparation

1. Heat olive oil in skillet over medium heat. Cook shallot 5 to 7 minutes or until golden, stirring frequently. Add spinach, and cook 5 minutes more. Remove from heat.

2. Stir yogurt, lemon zest, and rosemary into spinach mixture, and season with pepper.
