Greek Spinach Rice (Spanakorizo) III (M/P, TNT)
Source: A Greek cooking Yahoogroup
Serves: 4 to 6

1/4 cup olive oil
2 onions, finely chopped
1-1/2 cup long grain rice
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
3 cups chicken or vegetable stock, or water
1 pound frozen chopped spinach, thawed and thoroughly drained
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground pepper to taste

Heat the oil in a heavy pot over medium heat and sauté onion until tender but not brown, about 5 minutes. Add the rice and pepper flakes, stirring to coat the rice with oil.

Add the stock, spinach, salt, pepper, and bring to a boil, stirring down once or twice.

Reduce the heat and simmer until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, about 15 minutes. Fluff with a fork before serving.

Poster's Notes:
The recipe suggests garnishing with yoghurt (for this list, assuming you used vegetable stock or water) and/or chopped fresh dill. I didn't, but there was no lack of flavor without them.
