Spicy Green Rice

Spicy Green Rice


Ingredients:
1 cup loosely packed spinach
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, thin stems okay
2 green onions, roughly chopped
1 clove garlic, peeled
1/2 teaspoon minced fresh ginger, optional*
Check below.

Instructions:
  • Step number one. If you would like to strain the yogurt to make a thicker tzatziki (which is more traditional), add 2 cups plain Greek yogurt to a large rectangle of cheesecloth. Strain the yogurt over a bowl for about a half hour to an hour. I placed the cheesecloth over a colander and then set the whole thing over a bowl, and left it in the fridge.
  • And now, Meanwhile, slice the cucumber lengthwise, scrape out the center with a spoon, then dice. You can also grate it if that sounds easier to you, but I prefer to dice small. (see photos). Add the cucumber to a mesh strainer and set over a bowl. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt and stir to combine. Let sit for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  • After it, Use your hands to squeeze the salted cucumber over the sink. (don't rinse it ) Try to get out as much liquid as possible.
