Ingredients (for 4 persons):

500 g spinach or (300 g frozen spinach)
1 onion, sliced
3 tablespoons olive oil
600 g yoghurt
3 garlic cloves, crushed or grated
1 litre vegetable or chicken broth

Preparation

In a large pan, heat a little olive oil. Fry the onion until translucent and soft.

In the meantime, rinse the spinach. Tear the spinach into strips, or cut it into strips with kitchen scissors. Then add the spinach to the onions, and cook on low heat for about 5 to 10 minutes.

Add the rice and stir everything. Add the broth, and season with salt and pepper. Let the soup simmer until the rice is done.

Take the pan off the heat.

In a bowl, slightly beat or whisk the yoghurt. Add the garlic and mix again. Add the yoghurt to the spinach and mix well.

Warm up the soup on the stove but do not boil. The yogurt will curdle if the soup is brought to a boil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Ingredients (for 4 persons):

2 packs puff pastry (270g)
500 g walnuts (or almonds)
250 g butter (melted)
2 teaspoons cinnamon

For the syrup:
300 g of sugar
200 g of honey
6 pieces cloves
0.4 liters of water

Preparation

Bring the puff pastry sheet to room temperature as per direction.

Preheat oven to 190 ° C.

Take an aluminium foil and coat it with oil. Place one sheet of pastry on it.
Using a pizza cutter or knife divide it into 9 or more pieces. Similarly do the same for the other sheet also and keep aside.

Arrange them with a spacing of 4 cm in between.

Mix the finely chopped walnut/almonds with cinnamon powder, butter and 1/2 cup sugar. Spread this mix over one set of squares.

Cover each square with a piece of pastry sheet and make a diagonal slit to facilitate baking.

Bake this in 190 degrees for 10 minutes and check if it is puffed up. Otherwise increase the timing by 5 minutes.

In the mean time bring the rest of the sugar, the honey, the cloves and the water to boil. Let it achieve a syrup like consistency. Then add a pinch of cinnamon + vanilla essence to it. Let it cool. Take out the cloves.

Take the baked baklava out.

Pour the prepared syrup in a pan and place the baklava over it. Drizzle some syrup over the baklava and we are all set now.

Serve the Baklava immediately or cool. Baklava is ready!
