About this recipe:This is a perfect one pot winter dish, it has everything you need: vegetables, meat and rice. It's a very healthy and different way of cooking spinach. If you are a vegetarian, just don't add the meat. The only thing is cleaning the spinach, which I admit can be quite painful. The taste is so worth it!

Heat the pot, then add a generous drizzle of olive oil and wait till it sizzles. You will need a deep pot with a lid, since the spinach is quite large in volume at first, but as it's cooked, it sinks to the bottom.
Add the onions, fry them over medium heat until they are translucent. Stir the carrots in, followed by tomato, tomato puree and minced veal.
Lower the heat and cook, stirring often, about 10 minutes until the carrots are softened and tomatoes are slightly cooked.
Start adding the the spinach into the pot. Add in batches and mix. At this point the whole pot will be stuffed with spinach, but don't worry it will go down eventually.
Once all the spinach is in, add in the rice or bulgur and water. Season with salt and pepper.
Close the lid and let it simmer over low heat, about 15 to 20 minutes, or until the rice is cooked. Stir occasionally. Serve with Turkish yoghurt.
If you really want an explosion in your mouth, mince some garlic and mix with the yoghurt before serving.
