WHAT IS A BLUE SPINACH SAUCE?
Contrary to what the name suggests, you are not using blue spinach leaves. Instead your classic green spinach that Popeye swears by is flavored with a cow’s milk blue cheese. This blue spinach sauce is both creamy and can pair with most dishes ranging from a honey sweet to a spicy entrée.

- Why Put Blue Cheese In A Sauce?
Blue cheese add creamy, earthy flavor to sauces. Roquefort is one of the best known blue cheeses in the world. It’s made with both milk and cream. This gives it a velvety, rich texture. The spinach in this sauce adds a fresh, herbaceous note. Don’t like spinach? You don’t have to add it, go with kale instead!

WHAT PAIRS WELL WITH BLUE SPINACH SAUCE?
Stay away from other pungent flavors (like washed rinds) and let this sauce do what it does best, bring a funky creamy flavor to an otherwise dry dish! Have a pasta or chicken in need of a sauce? Have a cut of beef that came out a bit tougher then you’d like, even after resting it off heat for half the cooking time? Then give our Blue Cheese Spinach Sauce a try. (written by Chef Stef)
