  • Reviews

  • “Fresh spinach with mushroom in a sour cream sauce flavored with onions and garlic – a winning flavor combination. Because I was using fresh mushrooms, I started by cooking the mushrooms, onions and garlic in the butter before adding the spinach, salt and fresh ground pepper. The only thing I would do different would be to drain the excess liquid before adding the sour cream andmaybe a dash of hot sauce. Thanks Tebo, It’s a keeper!”

  • “The sour cream made it a bit too tangy for me, but I still enjoyed it. Very easy to prepare and it was really quick as well. Thanks!”

  • “I used fresh spinach and mushrooms. Since there was too much liquid, I disregarded the instructions to not boil the sour cream. It boiled down into a rich, thick sauce and my husband and I loved the finished dish.”

  • “This was good.DH is not a spinach eater, but he did like it cooked this way.Think I’ll try fresh mushrooms next time instead of canned.”

  • “I made this for myself, and though the flavor was very good, it did turn out watery. I did use frozen spinach though, instead of the fresh, so that could of caused it. Next time, I will be sure to drain all the liquid before adding the sour cream, as the flavor was terrific!”

  • “I liked this for a change of pace.I added about 2 1/2 cloves of garlic, half an onion and 2 tablespoons of butter.”

  • “This had a lovely mellow taste, I used fresh spinach, cooked it first, removed it and drained it well. I used fresh mushrooms also, so instead of the liquid from tinned mushrooms, I used 1/4 cup of white wine, then followed the recipe as written, returning the spinach to the pan at the last minute just to heat it through and fold it through the lovely sauce. (I used fat free sour cream and real smart eh, used the butter!)We really enjoyed the spinach, especially the sauce and we will make it again, thanks for sharing.”

  • “This was easy and wonderful!Guests loved it and I will be making it often.I used fresh mushrooms and followed what \”

  • “GREAT recipe .. my son loved and it was a hit at my supper table.I used frozen chopped spinach, and cooked it with no added water.Combined the rest of the ingredients in the same pot without draining, the water let over from the spinach .. I found it to be to watery and had to cook it down and serve with a slotted spoon.Maybe totally draining the spinach??”
