SPANAKORIZO - GREEK RICE
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 Small onion (chopped)
2 Cloves garlic (chopped)
1 Bunch of spinach (roughly chopped)
2 Cups rice
1/12 Cups chicken broth (or water)
1/4 Cup parsley (chopped)
1/4 Cup dill (chopped)
1/2 Lemon (juice and zest)
1/4 Feta cheese (crumbled)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Heat the oil in a pan, add the onions and saute until tender. Add garlic and saute until fragrant, about a minute. Then add lemon zest and spinach and let stir until they wilt.
Add chicken stock, rice, parsley and dill and season with salt and pepper and bring to a boil with the lid on.
Reduce heat and simmer on low heat until the rice is cooked.
At the end, just before serving, hit a splash of lemon juice and garnish with feta.
