About

This is another dish that I grew up having over and over. My mom always made this dish for our family ever since I can remember.

I think she would make this because it was healthy, quick and budget friendly. It’s perfect for a busy weeknight meal. The most difficult part of this recipe is washing the spinach and trying to fit all of it in one pot.

What makes this spinach so tasty is the garlicky yogurt sauce. I love eating mine with toasted pita bread.

Another great accompaniment is plain rice to serve on the side.
