Sbenegh w rezz - Spinack and rice


Since childhood, I remember mom cooking different stews with a side of rice. Honestly, they weren't my favorite as a child. But now, I can live on them, especially the spinach and rice dish. Usually it is made with meat but I wanted to try to healthiest version and skip the meat. It was delicious! The lemon juice added gave it a yummy taste.

1 medium onion, diced
5 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp allspice
salt and pepper
frozen or fresh spinach (drained and squeezed)
1 bunch chopped cilantro
lemon juice
Cooked rice
Pine nuts

Heat some of oil in a pot, fry the nuts until brown. Set aside. 
In same pot, add onions, fry for 5 minutes. Add garlic, and coriander. Stir for 2 minutes. Add the spinach. Cover and simmer on low heat till the spinach start releasing its juice, add water or stock, spices, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Cook on low heat for 1/2 hour. Serve with rice, sprinkled with the nuts.
