One-Pot Spinach, Rice and Mushroom Recipe


(This was meant to be posted last Friday, but I have been out of it lately).  🙁

Greek Orthodox Easter is usually a week later so, today is Good Friday for us.  And of course, this coming Sunday is Easter 🙂  Easter celebration in Greece is very important even more so than Christmas, so this really has shocked us all as I can imagine it did for everyone who did celebrate Easter last week.  My brother lives about 2 hours away and I haven’t seen him in over a month.  We do talk on the phone and keep up on what’s going on but it really isn’t the same thing, don’t you agree? This is definitely one Easter we will never forget.

In Greece, on Good Friday we do not eat any meat, butter or basically anything that comes from an animal.  So, my dish/recipe for today is a traditional Greek Spinach and Rice dish called “Spanakorizo” but of course with a twist.  I added Mushrooms…and I did not use Olive Oil but Vegetable Oil.   And some of the ingredients like Dill, and fresh Scallions come from my little garden. 🙂  I planted Dill and Scallions about a month ago and I was so happy to see that I can use them for this recipe. 

I prepared this recipe very early this morning because I started work a bit later today.  So, I started taking my photos, while I was preparing the recipe.  I always check my shots once I am done, but I did it again this time I forgot to place in the memory card…geeezzzz!!!  This is what you get when you start cooking at 6 am.  Does anyone know if there is an emoji that rolls its eyes because that’s exactly what I did!!!  I only have one shot….and basically it has all the ingredients in One-Pot. 🙂

  1. Aw Sophie, it must be hard not being able to see your brother. I'm glad we have technology to keep in touch with friends, family and the wider world, but no, it's not quite the same as seeing people in person, especially when you're close. Happy (belated) Easter! I like the sound of this. Spanakorizo is a good name for a dish, though I first read it as "SPANKorizo", which I think I preferred 😂 There is a rolling-eyes emoji. I don't get emojis on my laptop so I have to copy/paste a select few when I comment on blogs. These are the closest I could find to a rolling-eye dude on my Facebook Emoji list - 🙄🥴- you might want to save them for the next time you forget to put in the memory card! 😉 Stay safe lovely xx
    • hahahhahahaha Thanks for the emojiii but I have been trying to copy paste them and I can't seem to do it hahahahahahhahahahha. This is where I rolled my eyes hahahahhahah
  2. A delicious notable share! Catholics in the US also refrain from eating meat during the Paschal season. And the season counties as Christ’s has risen and appears to many for 40 days before ascending into Heaven. May praising His Name, fill Our hearts... each day!
  3. This looks delicious Sophie! I do hope you had a wonderful Easter (even though I know it was kinda weird this year😳) ❤️
