How To Make Spanakorizo or Greek Spinach Rice
Start with sautéing some onions in a little oil. Fry garlic until fragrant. Add plenty of spinach and dill. Season with salt and pepper. With spinach, you have two options – baby spinach or regular English spinach. Even though both are delicious in this recipe, I prefer the regular ones with large leaves. Just roughly chop them before adding to the pan.
With dill, you can use both stems and leaves. Just chop them roughly. Once the spinach starts to wilt, add rice, parsley and lemon juice. To cook the rice for this Greek spinach rice, you’ll need to use stock or broth instead of water. Trust me, it adds so much flavor to this dish making it unbelievably delicious.
Now, cook rice until it becomes very tender and absorbs the stock. Once cooked, let this rest for about 10 minutes before you fluff the rice with a fork.
Delicious spanakorizo or Greek spinach rice for your next meal!
