  Categories: Hungarian, Vegetables, Ceideburg 2
       Yield: 4 servings
  
       2 bn Of English spinach or
       1    Of silverbeet
       1    White bread roll, soaked in
            -water *
       3 tb Oil
       4 tb Plain flour
            Stock (or milk)
       2    Cloves of garlic, finely
            -chopped
            Salt
  
   * (or milk when serving a dairy-based meal)
   
   Wash the spinach thoroughly, slice and put it into a saucepan over
   brisk heat.  (The spinach will cook in the water still on the
   leaves.) Cook until limp and tender.  Squeeze the liquid out of the
   roll and sieve the roll and the spinach together or blend them to a
   puree in a food processor.
   
   In a saucepan, gently heat 3 tablespoons oil, add the garlic and when
   it is bubbling add the plain flour to make a paste or roux.  Stir
   over the heat until the roux changes colour to beige.  Add the
   spinach mixture and enough stock or milk to make a thickish sauce,
   stirring all the time until bubbles break the surface.  Add salt to
   taste and continue to cook, stirring, for a few more minutes.
   
   Makes 4 servings.
