Ingredients
Method
1

Pour a generous amount of EVOO (extra virgin olive oil, at least 3 tbsp) over low heat in a large pot.

2

Add in the chopped carrot, leek and garlic, and rice. Add in a few dashes of salt, pepper and oregano. Simmer for a couple of minutes while you rinse the fresh spinach.

3

Add in the spinach and enough water (preferably pre-boiled) to cover half the spinach. (The water will later get absorbed.) Finally, add in 3 tbsp of tomato sauce (or pureed tomato).

4

Bring to a boil and then lower heat to low-medium. Cook uncovered for 20-25 minutes, stirring more frequently towards to end.

5

Squeeze some lemon over your dish before serving.
