0 Stuffed Spinach Recipe

I love to eat spinach whether it be in a salad raw or cooked in a curry or dhal or stuffed like this recipe here.

My stuffed spinach recipe is very easy to make, once you have cooked the filling the stuffing of the spinach and further cooking is simple and takes no time at all. Spinach cooks very quickly so there is not much waiting for the finished dish once you have stuffed the spinach.

I use a spiced lamb mince filling and serve it with freshly cooked Basmati rice, it tastes wonderful with but you can serve this with potatoes or side of your choice.

How to make Jeenas stuffed spinach recipe

How to make the filling..

Pour a little oil in a large pan and cook the leeks, onions and tomato until they start to soften.

Add the garlic, stir well.

Add mushrooms.

Add all of the dried herbs and spices, stir well.

Add minced lamb and Worcestershire sauce salt and pepper to season, stir well.

Cook until the mince has browned.

How to stuff the spinach..

Take a large piece of tin foil and lay it out flat.

Take the spinach leaves and lay them flat on top of the tin foil.

Make sure that the leaves over lap one another and that there are no gaps.

Make sure there is plenty of spinach on top of the tin foil, spinach cooks very quickly and wilts easily so you need to have a good amount of spinach.

Spoon the lamb mince filling into the corner of the spinach.

Leave space at the edges.

Do the same all along the spinach remembering not to place the filling near the edges.

Carefully start to roll up the spinach leaves using the tin foil.

Once you have rolled the spinach enough to where it touches underneath gently lift the tin foil away a little.

Roll the spinach up so that the tin foil is not in the centre of the spinach roll.

Twist the ends and place onto a long baking tray.

Pour some hot water onto the oven tray.

Place into a hot oven at 180C for 10 -15 minutes.

Once cooked slice into sections and serve with rice or potatoes.

Enjoy this delicious stuffed spinach recipe.
