It is 30 something degrees outside. Brrr, cold. It snowed today. We didn't get lots of snow this time. A quick and easy spinach recipe for a cold-weather food..Warm, tasty, healthy and easy! Lol, it is weekend. So I looked for an easy one and made my mom's spinach recipe today.
9 0z. fresh baby spinach(chopped)
1/4 pound ground beef
2 tbsp oil
3 tbsp tomato puree
2 tbsp rice
1 cup hot water, salt
Saute onion in oil in a large pot. Add ground beef and brown. Then stir in tomato puree and add spinach. I know it seems a lot of spinach:-) Not really. Combine, cover and simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then add rice and water(hot water) and cook until rice is soft(15-20 minutes). It depends on the type of rice chosen. I used- Uncle Ben's Enriched Parboiled Long Grain. You can add some black pepper to this dish if you want. I always had this spinach dish with plain yogurt. That 's how my mom used to serve it.
If you want to make this recipe easier, grab yourself one of those great little bags of thoroughly washed spinach from the store.
How are all your weekends going ???
