Spinach with Rice - السبانخ مع الارز


This is a very easy and healthy spinach recipe.

Serves 4-5

Ingredients:
1 big bunch of fresh Spinach, chopped (or frozen, canned etc..)
1/3 cup pine nuts
1 medium onion, chopped
1 clove of garlic, minced
1/3 cup of olive oil
1 tsp allspice
Juice of a lemon
1 tsp tomato sauce
1 cup of lean minced meat
1 1/2 cups of water
Salt & pepper to taste

- In the cooking pot, add onions, olive oil, garlic, pine nuts and cook for about a minute, then add the minced meat, salt, pepper & allspice. When the meat is cooked, add the spinach. Turn the heat to low and let the spinach cook for few minutes then add the water, tomato sauce and let it all slow cook for another 12 minutes. Add the lemon juice in the last 5 minutes. Serve with rice cooked with vermicelli (the rice recipe is already posted with the red beans/chilli recipe).

this is a very interesting tastes together, i mean adding garlic to the spinach stew! i am sure it is great...my recipe is vegetarian and i add only sauteed onions and canned chickpeas, with tap water :)

Hi Summer!
Believe it or not, that one clove of garlic in a whole pot of stew gives it a nice taste without tasting strong garlic. Yeah I do the vegetarian version too but without chickpeas and I serve it with steaks or salmon fillets. I'll check yours :)
