Spanakorizo is a Greek rice dish made with onions, spinach, olive oil, and lemon juice. In this version I added garlic, mushrooms, and dill.

Serves 3

What you need:

1 yellow onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, diced
8-10 white mushrooms, sliced
5 cups fresh spinach
1/2 tsp dill
1/3 cup olive oil
1 1/2 cup basmati rice
6 cups water
2 tbsp lemon juice

In a deep pan, sauté the onion and garlic in the olive oil until transparent (15-20 min). Add the mushrooms, spinach, and dill and sauté for another 7 minutes until the spinach is wilted. Add the rice along with the water. Stir occasionally on medium heat for 15-20 minutes or until rice is cooked. Add the lemon juice, salt, and pepper and stir. Let sit for 10 minutes before serving.
