Rice with Spinach, Leeks & Fresh Garlic

Recipes |

Spring is in full swing and we love seeing nature changing all around us. We are spending most of May cooking with the season’s bounty and this means only one thing: delicious greens!

Our inspiration for today’s hearty recipe comes from the classic Greek dishes of spanakorizo (spinach and rice stew) and prasorizo (leek and rice stew). Here, we decided to add both leeks and spinach in our rice, along with some fresh garlic we found at the market. You can use any garlic you can find.

For this recipe we are using our organic Carolina rice. It comes from small farms in Northern Greece, and is high in amylopectin (starch), making it the perfect ingredient for this dish.

Serve with a glass of Nerantzi Malagouzia.

Serves 2



  • Finely chop the garlic and leek.
  • In a medium-sized heavy-bottomed pot add the olive oil, garlic and leek. Cook over medium heat until translucent.
  • Add the rice and stir until the grains are coated with the olive oil.
  • Pour in a few splashes of wine and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the vegetable stock and cook until the rice is tender, 20- 30 minutes.
  • Once the rice is cooked, add the spinach leaves and cook for 5 more minutes.
  • Serve with plenty of olive oil and lemon juice.
