Spinach and Meat

As the weather gets warmer I would rather spend hours outside enjoying the sunlight than being cooped up in my tiny kitchen with no view. So even though I love to experiment when I cook sometimes I just want a quick meal that almost makes itself... or that is easy enough for someone to make it for you :)

This beef and spinach dish does not take a long time to prepare and it is delicious. The yogurt and garlic compliment the meat perfectly. It is a great meal to have on its own or with a side of fresh cooked vegetables or a salad.

makes 2-3 portions 

1/2 pound of ground beef
1 6-oz bag of fresh spinach leaves
1 tablepoon of white rice
1 large yellow onion, chopped
3 oz of tomato paste
1 container of plain yogurt
2 gloves of garlic

Heat the oil in the pan and add the onion and cook for 3-4 minutes. Add the rice and cook for another 2 minutes.

Add the ground beef and cook for about 5 minutes until the meat is brown.

Add the tomato paste and cook for another 2 minutes.

Finally, add the spinach and about a 1/2 cup of water .  Cook for 5-10 minutes on low heat or until the spinach is soft, stirring occasionally.

While the dish is cooking, crush 2 cloves of garlic and mix it into the yogurt.

Serve the meat and spinach with the yogurt mixture.
