All I can say is wow! After day 29 of the keto diet, a huge 30″ snow storm I needed a comfort food. The the flavors blend so well together. We raise our own lamb so I know what my lamb eat. If I could give this a higher rating I would. My husband loved it too but said it was a little salty for him. I only added a half of teaspoon despite what the recipe said. Feta can be salty. It is a quick meal…..
So delish…smooth and buttery goodness with the rice souping up the richness of lamb grease. Tender, delectable, makes me think of the precious Lamb who died to save us.
This was so easy and delicious.
I made this dish and it was delicious. I didn’t have spinach so I used what I had which was Napa cabbage. Very easy and tasty. Will do again.
Are the nutritional measurements correct? When I type everything into the carb manager app it says its 19 total carbs not 9. I’ve been making this recipe for awhile now and absolutely love it, I’m just confused about the macros.
Nutritional calculations depend on the exact product you selected in Carb Manager, as different brands will have different macros. I would have to see what you inputted to see why there is a discrepancy. My estimates are based on the actual products that I used when developing this recipe.
Really enjoyed this.
This was excellent! Thanks for sharing.
What if I wanted to use kale instead of spinach? (It takes longer to cook/wilt than spinach). Or is there another green you would recommend?
If you like kale, it’s a good substitution for spinach in this recipe. Swiss chard would also be good. Since kale takes longer to cook, I would slice it up finely to reduce its cooking time.
This sounds fantastic! We LOVE lamb!
Will let you know after we make it, thank you so much!
This recipe would be awesome with ground pork too! Not everyone likes lamb. For me, it’s a big gamey. But other than that, this sounds great! I am going to try this tonight.
