Lenten Spinach Rice

2 lbs spinach
½ cup olive oil
2 onions
4 cloves garlic
1 cup rice
1 cup water
¼ cup fresh dill
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup crumbled feta
(lots) of calamata olives
salt and pepper


Sauté onions in oil at the bottom of a big pot, until golden (20 min).  Part way through, add garlic and rice.  Add spinach in parts (it wont all fit in the pot at once), until all spinach is wilted.  Add water and dill.  Cover and steam for 18-20 min.  You may need to add a bit more water.  Add lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste.  Fold in feta (we add more than one cup) and olives.
