Egyptian Spinach Soup recipe – 194 calories

Ingredients:
1 lb spinach (well washed, large stems removed)
1/3 cup basmati rice
4 cups chicken stock
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 onion, finely chopped
2 cups plain yogurt
1/4 teaspoon turmeric (or 1/4 teaspoon Madras curry powder)
3-4 scallions, finely chopped
salt and pepper, to taste


Preparation:
1. In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil and saute the onion until soft.
2. Add the turmeric (or curry powder if using) and cook for 1 more minute to let the spice warm through.
3. Add the chicken stock, rice, scallions, and salt and pepper to taste.
4. Simmer gently for about 15 minutes (until the rice is cooked), being careful not to overcook.
6. Chiffonade the spinach (cut into long, thin strips), add to the pan and cook for another 5 minutes.
7. To serve the soup hot: Beat the garlic and yogurt into the soup, reheating gently so that the yogurt does not curdle.
8. To serve the soup cold: Allow the soup to cool, then add the garlic and yogurt and puree.

  14. I do agree with all the ideas you’ve presented to your post. They’re really convincing and can certainly work.
    Still, the posts are very short for beginners. May just you please prolong them a little from next time?
    Thanks for the post.
