Please see my rating system, I cannot give more than 3 stars when the directions refer to onions not listed in the ingredients (I used 1 medium onion). I also think a cooking time should be given after layering the spinach. With spinach on top while cooking, it is impossible to see the rice unless everything is moved around. I gave it 30 minutes. (I made 1/4 of Turkish Red Pepper Paste #294358 for the paste and thought it was was too mild.) For this recipe, I liked the Garlic Yogurt Sauce on top; to help the shopping list, "garlic, yogurt sauce" should be entered as "GARLIC YOGURT SAUCE:" We enjoyed this dish, as we both got seconds. If this recipes is revised, please let me know so I can adjust my rating. Make for Spring 2013 Pick-A-Chef.
