Creamed Spinach with Boursin

You could use spinach or chard for this recipe – it’s a bit of a winner if you eat dairy as you can mix it with other veggies, like roasted leeks or broccoli.


  • 125g spinach or chard leaves, stalks removed
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 tbsp double cream
  • 30g boursin or soft cheese
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • Pinch sea salt


  1. In a saucepan, heat the oil on a medium heat and cook the garlic for 2-3 mins
  2. Add the spinach and stir – let it wilt down and cook for a further 3 mins
  3. Remove from the heat, drain off excess liquid using a sieve, then put the cooled, cooked spinach into a blender and mix with the cream, boursin and sea salt.
