A while ago, as lunch for the family, I whipped up a menu of pumpkin potato pancakes with creamed spinach and mushrooms, and some carrot salad with balsamic vinegar dressing. That was the first time I tried making a video recipe, and I learned a lot while making Part 1 (the pancakes). This is Part 2, i.e the creamed spinach with mushrooms. For the record, this isn’t really ‘creamed’ spinach in the classical sense, but substitutes cream with milk to make the dish a little lighter.
Over the last few months, I’ve learned more about putting videos together (you can check out my progress on my YouTube channel), and I’ve decided that simple is best. Hopefully you’ll agree, because this video is pretty much my simplest yet! It’s a quick two-minute video that’ll give you the essentials of how to cook this simple dish yourself.
