  • Summary

    Spanakorizo is a traditional Greek dish made of rice and spinach with dill and lemon giving it a fresh and bold flavor.

    Ingredients

    • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    • 1 cup finely chopped red onion
    • 1 garlic clove, minced
    • 1 cup long-grain rice (I used Jasmine)
    • 8 cups (~ 1 pound/450 g) chopped fresh spinach, stems removed
    • ½ cup water (more as needed)
    • ½ cup chopped wild fennel fronds or dill (I used dill)
    • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • Juice of 2 lemons, strained (1 would have been enough for me)
