Sauteed Spinach with garlic yogurt dip

Some people do not like Spinach/esfenaj اسفناج and even they do not give a chance to themselves to taste it, but with this recipe you will have very delicious sauteed Spinach with garlic yogurt dip. It is incredibly simple and light meal but yet delicious and flavorful. This is one of the most tastiest spinach dish that you ever tried. This is my mothe’s r recipe and with this recipe many people converted to spinach eaters 😂😂 and she is very proud of that.

Most important spice for this dish is turmeric with nice orange colour,that is called ‘Zard Chobe زردچوبه’ in Farsi language. Taste and colour of beautiful turmeric not only brings a lovely aroma and colour to the dish but also it’s an anti-inflammatory.

This is my mother’s recipe and Let me tell you a sweet memory from my mother about this spinach dish. In Iranian tradition, when we cook a dish, the food smell might goes out of house and your neighbours smell it. And we believe we should share some of that meal with neighbours, with the idea that , maybe they want to try the dish, but it is not possible for them to make it, so we share it freely with them. sometimes when my mother cooked this spinach dish, shared it with friends or neighbours and believe me or not, she converted many many people to a spinach lover with this recipe, she changed their mind and she was very proud of that.

Ingredients
500 g Spinach leaves
1 large onion
2 cloves of garlic, grated
4 tbsp cooked yellow split pea
1/2 cup cooked rice
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 tsp turmeric

salt and pepper to taste

How to make it
Cut roots of Spinach leaves. Then Fill a large bowl with cold water and submerse the spinach in it to wash the leaves. …

Place the washed leaves in a pot, add 50 ml cold water . Cover the pot with a lid and Cook it for 3 minutes over a medium heat. Then stirring with a wooden spoon and cook it for another minute until all the spinach is wilted. Remove it from the stove. As Spinach releases a lot of water as it cooks, place the cooked spinach in a colander and squeeze to get rid of extra water. and let cool down. Then chop it finely..

Hello everyone, my name is Rozina. I am Iranian with Azerbaijani roots. I was raised in Iran but I am living in Scotland. I am passionate about cooking and preparing meals for my family and friends. I tell them the story behind the meal, the pronunciation of their Iranian name and the spices that used in Persian cuisine. I am a photographer, a cooking teacher, and very interested to introduce Persian and Azerbaijani meals, desserts and beverages to people from different cultures, as I love to try food from all over the world. Iranian cuisine is a combination of rice with meat ( chicken, beef, lamb, fish, turkey), nuts, fruits, dried and fresh herbs and vegetables. Iranian food is a celebration of flavor, colour and spices such as: saffron, cinnamon, cardamom, turmeric, dried rose petals, dried limes, cumin, .... I share my recipes in Farsi/English along with step by step photos of preparation. I take all my own pictures. I have learned my traditional Persian and Azerbaijani recipes from my lovely mother, and she has learned from her mother. Over the years, I have experimented and learned more recipes. Some of my recipes are a fusion Western and Middle Eastern cuisine. Some are forgotten from Persian cooking tables and I try with posting and sharing those ones, to preserve them. All my recipes and pictures are property of rozinaspersiankitchen. I would be pleased if you would mention my site if you wish to use any of them. So, if you are interested to know about Persian /Azerbaijani food taste, you can try my website. I will be glad to hear your ideas about my recipes. :) Thank you for visiting my website.
