A light, easy sauce that will enhance your steamed vegetables, our
Spinach Sauce is particularly good with Steamed Artichokes rather
than the traditional drawn butter or a mayonnaise based sauce.
The combination is reminiscent of the popular Spinach Artichoke
Dip, but without the high fat and cholesterol. It also makes a great
sauce to toss with your choice of steamed vegetables and freshly
cooked pasta to make a complete meal.
Makes 1-1/2 cups
Preparation: 10 minutes, + overnight (12 hours) to drain the yogurt
1 cup nonfat plain yogurt (without gelatin)
1 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
1/2 ounce Reggiano Parmesan cheese, cut in 1/2-inch
1 – 2 cloves garlic, peeled
8 chives, cut into 1-inch lengths
1/2 cup well-packed flat Italian
parsley leaves
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
4 – 6 drops Tabasco
or other
hot sauce (to taste)
3 – 4 tablespoons water (as needed)
Use a yogurt strainer or line a strainer with a coffee filter or
cheesecloth to strain the yogurt overnight to remove the whey.
The yogurt will thicken and lose about half its volume. Discard
the whey.
Place the thawed spinach in a clean tea towel (use a dark or old
towel – it will stain); squeeze dry and reserve.
Insert the metal blade in the Cuisinart
food processor. With the
machine running, drop the cheese and garlic through the small
feed tube; process 15 – 20 seconds to chop. Add the chives, pars-
ley, drained yogurt and spinach; process to combine, 45 seconds.
Scrape the work bowl. With the machine running, add the olive oil
through the small feed tube in a steady stream. Scrape the work
bowl. Add the hot sauce, then the water, and process to blend,
about 20 – 30 seconds. The sauce will be thick. If you wish a
thinner sauce, add more water a little at a time to taste.
Use the sauce for steamed vegetables, or with steamed chicken
or seafood.
