  • 2/3 cup 2% reduced-fat milk
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped carrot
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped onion
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (10-ounce) bag fresh spinach (about 10 cups)

  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

2. Remove brown gills from undersides of mushrooms using a spoon; discard gills.

3. Combine milk and flour, stirring with a whisk until blended.
