This is so easy, even though the steps look long. It really is a matter of having everything prepped before you cook. I think the onion is 100 times better grilled, and since I’m grilling the meat, it isn’t any more trouble.
I combined the ideas from several recipes, looked at what I had in the fridge, and set about to put these grains to good use. (This is often my approach. I call it seat-of-the-pants cooking.)
Use that leftover coffee to make a delicious coffee smoothie.
It’s as good as chicken soup for a cold, because the lemon adds lots of vitamin C.
Over the years, I have discovered that you can freeze spanakopita before baking it; when you are ready to eat it, just put the frozen, prepared pie into a cold oven and then set the oven to 350°F. It may take an hour for the pie to warm through.
Sometimes (most times), simple is best. This appetizer/side dish/salad is fantastic with pita triangles.
