White House Creamed Spinach

by Kelsey
Because I am obsessed about any food that goes into the mouths of the Obamas in the same way pre-teens are obsessed with Hannah Montana and the Jonas Brothers, I am a huge fan of the New York Times blog that reveals the secret (sort of) behind the current White House kitchen’s creamless creamed spinach.
White House executive chef Cristeta Comerford was generous enough to divulge her secret ingredients but not her methods, so the New York Times turned to executive chef Dan Barber, of restaurants in Manhattan and Pocantico Hills, N.Y. for his take on the recipe.
This recipe for creamless-creamed spinach is a bargain, healthy, and painless. It requires only fresh organic spinach ($1.99 per bag at Trader Joes), olive oil, and shallots (and a blender to finish it off).

Let me know your thoughts if you try it!
