GREEK-STYLE RICE WITH SPINACH, FETA, AND BLACK OLIVES

900 g (2 lb) fresh spinach, washed and tough stems removed
coarse sea salt
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
85 g (3 oz) thinly sliced spring onions
115 g (4 oz) finely chopped onions or leeks
115 g (4 oz) fresh tomato puree reduced by boiling to 3 tablespoons
115 g (4 oz) long-grain rice
15 g (1/2 oz) chopped dill
freshly ground black pepper
oily black olives for garnish
chunks of feta cheese or spoonfuls of thick yogurt for garnish

Wash the spinach and tender stems until the water runs clean; drain.
If leaves are large and crinkly, sprinkle lightly with salt and
mix well. Let stand in a colander 15 minutes; rinse and squeeze
out excess moisture. Shred the spinach to make about 3 cups.

Heat 3 tablespoons of the olive oil in a 25-cm (10-in) straight-sided
frying pan. Add the spring onions, onions, a pinch of salt, and 50
ml (2 fl oz) water and cook, covered, over medium-low heat for 10
minutes. When the water evaporates, slowly let the onions turn
golden, stirring occasionally. Add 250 ml (8 fl oz) water, the
reduced tomato puree, and rice. Cover and cook for 10 minutes.

Spread the spinach and dill over the rice, cover and cook 10 minutes
longer. Remove from heat, mix, then place a double thickness of
kitchen paper over the rice, cover again, and let stand until cool.
Adjust the seasoning with black pepper and salt and drizzle with
the remaining tablespoon of olive oil. Serve at room temperature
garnished with black olives and feta cheese or yogurt.

Serves 4.
