Spinach with Meatballs

(Köfteli Ispanak)

Spinach with Meatballs
Kofte (meatball) ingredients:
~100 g medium ground beef
1 tbsp grated onion
1/3 cup flour, all purpose
A bunch of baby spinach, washed, drained, if you like cut in medium-sized pieces
1-2 spring onions, chopped
1 tbsp rice, rinsed
1 medium-sized tomato, peeled, diced
1 tsp red pepper paste
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp butter

Garlic-Yogurt Sauce:
1/2 cup yogurt, plain
1 garlic clove, mashed with salt

Knead all the kofte ingredients, make little balls (larger than hazelnuts) and flour them all. Heat the oil and lightly fry in a medium-sized pot.

Then add the red pepper paste, rice, tomato, spinach and butter. Cover and cook until the rice is done.

Serve with Garlic-Yogurt Sauce on the side.

Makes 2 servings.

About how much water do you add?

I did not add any water. All the liquid came from the spinach
and tomatoes:)
