Author Notes: A traditional Greek vegetarian dish, light and healthy, perfect for summer days. I got this recipe from my granny and we like to accompany it with feta cheese and fresh bread! —Vassia Simou
bunch spring onions
cup pudding rice
- Clean the spinach very well and let it dry.
- Finely slice the leeks and the spring onions and the onion. In a large flat pot add some olive oil to cover the bottom and when it’s hot enough add the leeks,spring onions and onions. Stir until the soft but not burnt!
- Now you can add the spinach and the rice and keep stirring. When the spinach starts to wilt add a bit of white wine (I like to use ouzo) and let it evaporate before you add a cup of water pepper and salt. Leave it to cook for 20 minutes but keep an eye in case it needs more water and stir every so often.
- When it’s ready just add the dill and the lemon juice.
