Creamed Spinach

By cancerconnect

A dash of lemon juice or your favorite hot sauce adds to the flavor of this delicious dish. You may also wish to include mushrooms, as they are full of immune-supporting nutrients including beta glucans and vitamin D.

2 pounds spinach
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon salt
Fresh ground pepper
½ cup Greek-style plain nonfat yogurt

Wash and drain the spinach, then add the water and salt. Cook in a heavy deep skillet, covered, and shake frequently or lift leaves with a fork. Cook 7 to 12 minutes until tender; drain. Add pepper and warmed yogurt and serve hot.
