Difficulty Level


  • 750 grams spinach
  • 2 onions
  • 1 cup rice
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped dill
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley
  • juice of 1/2 lemon


Spanakoriso. Wash and clean the spinach thoroughly. Cut the leaves 2 to 3 times. Peel the onions and cut in fine pieces. Wash the rice. Fry the onions in 4 tablespoons olive oil until glassy. Add the spinach to the onions and cook briefly. Add salt, pepper and the herbs. Add the rice, the remaining olive oil and 1 1/2 cups water. Cook at low heat in the closed pot for 20 minutes. Stir from time to time in order to prevent from sticking to the pot. Add the lemon juice before serving. Hint: This dish gets a particularly fine taste if adding a pinch of sugar and 1 tablespoon tomato paste. Dissolve the tomato paste in some water and pour in after the rice was added to the spinach.
