    Love love love spanakorizzo. Thanks for reminding us this wonderful food. A little raw olive oil at the end and freshly ground black pepper is a must.

  • Frogman Toad on March 18, 2022

    You need to try Bulgarian feta. It’s better

  • Daniel Winningham on March 18, 2022

    im always looking for new ways to use feta and spinach

  • Diana America Rivero on March 18, 2022

    Spinach rice!? Gonna have to try this. One of the great things about living in a diverse place is that you get to learn about other cultures, so having Peruvian neighbors meant that we got to fall in love with and adopt their recipe for cilantro rice as our own. To this day, one of my fave childhood dishes.

  • Snake Plisskin on March 18, 2022

    Love this stuff.

  • Nick Jackelson on March 18, 2022

    Is it possible chef john has been a deep cover cayenne pepper industry plant this whole time?

  • Stephanie L on March 18, 2022

    What brand kitchen knife do you use?

  • Kenneth Allen on March 18, 2022

    If Uncle Roger ever reviewed Chef John, he would award if the title of uncle

    If dill and mint wasn't stupidly expensive at our local supermarkets, this would 100% become a staple in my kitchen.

  • Wyatt Gwyon on March 18, 2022

    I used to make this out of left over rice for a salad bar. No one believed that our customers would eat a cold rice salad. I sold the hell out of it. But I didn't know the greek name.

  • Kimberly Robinson on March 18, 2022

    That would go nicely with lemon chicken.

  • Thanos Maris on March 18, 2022

    "I thought I should throw my vegetarian friends a bone, or should I say a twig?" 😂😂

  • Cute Pumpkin on March 18, 2022

    I appreciate the vegetarian recipe! Looks great.

  • sgtm on March 18, 2022

    The food that hate all the greek childrens

  • gudrun garzon on March 18, 2022

    Food wishes , how come you were absent for such a long time? I missed your delicious recipes!

  • Jane-Ann Armstrong on March 18, 2022


  • Ann Brookens on March 18, 2022

    For some reason mint leaves are really rare in my grocery store and I haven't tried growing it yet since my experience with other herb plants was abysmal.

    Perfect timing! Greek chicken was on the menu for the weekend, but I needed inspiration for a side! Thank you!

  • Jonathan LeBlanc on March 18, 2022

    Okay, now that looks yummy.

  • Veronica Friery-Pillon on March 18, 2022

    Chef!! I love the "new" part in which you show all the ingredients ahead!!!
    Please please keep it going forward.
    It looks so amazing starting the recipes with the organisation like you did here….
    Can't wait for the next video.
    PS: I still would love to see your take on Gnocchi alla Sorrentino (my food wishes and the best comfort food you will have!)

  • Panagiotes Koutelidakes on March 18, 2022


  • Zena G on March 18, 2022

    Yay ! Spanakorizo ! Finally more to Greek food than just Gyros ! Bravo Sou ! Keep em coming ! 👍👍👍

  • surft on March 18, 2022

    Looks yummy. Can I use a rice cooker for this?

  • Bill Farlo on March 18, 2022

    nice touch with the Greek pattern plate

  • mariusz nowak on March 18, 2022

    I wonder if this would work with cauliflower rice

  • Robert Pruitt on March 18, 2022

    This looks sooo good.
    I'm gonna find the lowest glycemic index rice I can and make this.

    My Dr. and my prediabetes can kiss my butt. 😄

  • Veronica Friery-Pillon on March 18, 2022

    Chef John, aside being a huge fan of yours and a "feeder" (being told by people that I cook for and keep on coming back!?!?) I am also a geek. Your blog posts are unfortunately not mobile friendly. Can you check that otherwise you can DM me and will help you configure that.
    Lastly you should be posting everyday!!!!!!
    Thank you so much for your videos, quirky sense of humour, your take on recipes and methods and for your hard work!

  • Gus Z on March 18, 2022

    Nice to see your version of some Greek recipes. Spinach pie has a completely different flavour profile. You should make it.

  • Steve Logan on March 18, 2022

    Chef John, very nice recipe & this is tasty, great Lent meal or budget meal as many folks are looking for that with food, fuel, etc…prices soaring these days, God Bless everyone & please stay safe

  • Anna Joie on March 18, 2022

    Seeing those pickled onions unlocked a Food Wish of mine to see you create a nice Dominican Style Mofongo or Mangu! 😻🙌🏼

  • Steve Logan on March 18, 2022

    Folks, btw, even herbs are costly now like mint, etc…a good alternative to this is Spinakopita which you can find on Chef John's home page archives, & does not need all the herbs, is less costly, filling, & delicious

  • amateur EPICUREAN on March 18, 2022

    Authentic recipe and the serving dish is a nice touch!

  • tortilla wrap on March 18, 2022

    Great with leeks too!

  • Joseph Parent on March 18, 2022

    Literally made this the other day. Excellent dish

  • VRA. Food kerala on March 18, 2022


  • Jane Houck on March 18, 2022

    Too funny about the community service picking lemons 😂❤️

  • volugthebeast on March 18, 2022

    Looking forward to trying this in my rice cooker! Thanks for sharing!
