I close my eyes and I'm in Greece while I eat this delicious risotto. I used the Arborio rice for this dish and was thrilled to discover that I could make a risotto without standing for a half hour of more, stirring and adding broth to my rice. It came out exactly right...creamy. I add the feta, and think it added a wonderful dimension, but my husband doesn't care for it and left it out. I'm keeping this recipe to make some other risotto variations using the same proportions, since it turned out so well.

I really liked the combination of lemon juice and dill in this, as it gave it a distinctive taste. We served it with feta cheese. Kalamata olives would have been good too but we didn't have any. My only comment would be to add the spinach a little later in the cooking process because I felt it came out a bit slimy. Also, we thought the amount of olive oil was excessive so we reduced it substantially.:) Thanks evelyn!

Great and easy, really tastefull. I used lime juice (that's what I can get here in razil), jasmine rice and sardo cheese, it turned out a little too acidic, but great. Next time I'll cut the lime juice.

Just made it earlier today, delicious! I also added 2 garlic cloves with the onion at the beginning to add to the flavour, and a bit of sweetcorn for the last 2 minutes for added crumchiness. Lovely dish, I recommend addind a bit of feta, too!

Reminds me of home. Very good recipe and much close to the real thing. I would add a little extra tomato paste. Adding a little more fresh olive oil, lemon and feta on your serving plate is a MUST.

Wonderful new way to make risotto. This combines two of my favorites into one great dish. I made it just as described and it turned out delicious.

I've made this 3 times in the last 3 weeks! I can't believe I forgot to review it. I love Evelyn's recipes so much that I will make anything with her name on it. I know it will be straight-forward to prepare, at least fairly healthy and that it will have wonderful flavor! We have another staple, Efharisto!

One of my favorite vegetarian meals. I made it last night but I also used fresh tomato and one teaspoon tomato paste and added the lemon just before serving!

Will definitely make this recipe again and again! I prepared the spanakorizo using risotto and on another occasion, I used brown rice. The dish is excellent with either rice! I used my pressure cooker which sped up the cooking time. Brought in this dish to my Greek friends at work and I received MANY compliments! This dish is now a frequent request from my children (ages 15, 14 and 9)! Yummy!

Love this . . . went very well with our roast pork loin. Because there are only two of us I cut the recipe in half. Did not have fresh lemon juice so substituted white wine and it was great! Thanks for sharing.
