Σπανακόριζο με Λαθολέμονο

Spanakorizo with Latholemono Sauce

As veg goes, spinach is my favorite, especially when it floods my garden in the summer and fall. This Greek dish is creamy, tangy, and super high in iron. I make it heavy on the spinach and light on the rice. It is Hunter’s favorite side dish to accompany any protein. I also put it in my omelets and salads the next day.
