Green sauce


3 tablespoons flour

4 tablespoons butter

2 cups vegetable broth

1/2 cup cream or 1/2 & 1/2

2 teaspoons minced garlic

4 cups fresh spinach

2 poblano peppers

S & P


Put poblanos in oven on broil.  Let each side get charred.  Put in a plastic container for about 10 minutes.  Then take out, and peel off the skin & take out the stem & seeds. Melt butter in pan, then add the flour.  Cook on medium heat until bubbly & light brown.  Then whisk in the stock.  Continue stirring until smooth. Put the washed, trimmed spinach into blender with poblano.  Pour 1/2 of the flour/stock mixture on top of the spinach.  Blend until fully mixed.  Pour this back in the pan with the other 1/2 of flour/stock mixture.  Add garlic, cream and S & P and cook over low heat.

This is a great sauce over pasta, chicken or enchiladas.
