Spanakorizo is a very classic vegetarian dish of Greek cuisine. Rice combined with spinach and lemon juice is a simple and healthy dish, which is worth preparing when fresh spinach is available. It can be served as an appetizer or an independent dish. Spanakorizo is also worth sprinkling with crumbled feta cheese.
Some spanakorizo ingredients enrich by adding 1-2 cloves of garlic, but this is not necessary. In our opinion, the dish without the addition tastes even better. You can also add chopped tomatoes to the classic composition, but of course it's worth to prepare this dish in the most basic version.
The taste of spanakorizo should be quite sour, but in our opinion the amount of lemon juice is better suited to your taste.

Another tasty way for this vegetable is to make it in a stuffed form. We chose stuffing without meat, mainly based on feta and walnuts.
