Recipe Of The Day: Creamed Spinach

Michelle Obama's kitchen makes a version that purees spinach with nothing more than oil and shallots for a creamed spinach effect. Others have replaced olive oil for butter in the béchamel sauce. But it's the cream and butter that we love about our creamed spinach recipe, so why would we give that up?
