How to Make Ispanak Corbasi Part 2/2
So now we have our blender ready and our soup is done and you saw how fast that was, right? It’s like 10 minutes especially when you have the potato already boiled remember do this from the morning always boil few potatoes. You can always use potatoes even of you’re not making a soup you could a great salad, you could do with that lemon and olive oil that we always do or you could do mayonnaise that’s also another great salad that maybe we’ll do one day. Now, when you’re filling this up, fill it up with ladle you don’t burn yourself and you could a little bit of time as well. This way it doesn’t splash all over the place. So now, I just put in our blender and spinach is great you can make soup out of it or salad all different kinds of dishes in Turkish cuisine. So now, I’m just going to puree this up for about a minute until I see everything is ground up really nicely.
So sometimes it takes about a minute because you really want that spinach to get nice and ground up. And now, we can add in our milk, we just put the spinach back in here and then add our milk because the heat is going to cook the milk up. It’s just going to give it a great light, very cream color. You could see—you can even smell it and such a great texture it’s not too thick but it’s not thin too the potato is just the great thickener and it’s better than flour because it doesn’t give it that flavor, just a natural thickener. See the color just a very beautiful green. This is going to be delicious and it’s going to go great with the rest of our meal. So now, we’re just going to clean everything up and then we’ll get ready to serve our delicious soup.
So now, it’s time to serve our delicious spinach soup. It’s great creamy green color. You could see it’s smoking hot just the best way to drink soup while it’s really not and it’s going to great with the rest of our meal. We have the great dolma and the great—going and that’s like potatoes and beef almost liked a burger and fries. This is going to go great with that as well we just had this great spinach soup you can make this soup with anything a peas, carrots. We’ll just garnish with a little bit of paprika. Now, what I’m going to do is check on our—see how it’s doing. I think it’s pretty much done so what I’m going to do is just take off the thin foil and let the top get really nice and brown.
And now our delicious dish is ready. You can see the beautiful ray of the colors. See how the tomato and the pepper just give it that great color and just going to give with that little extra kick as well. And you could do this with the eggplant, with eggplant it would look exactly the same just with the eggplant. So what we’re going to do now is just put in our serving platter and you could see already that it has so much juice from the beef and the sauce. When I’m making it in my house I always make it extra saucy because that’s how my husband likes it. He loves anything with tomatoes or tomato sauce or tomato paste. So I’m going to get this ready, we’re going to put it on and you can see the potatoes it looks so great and crispy. And the browning on top really gives it that great finishing touch. So once you have it on your serving platter, just take a spoon and drizzle a little bit of the sauce on top. Now, you don’t want it too much because you don’t want it too watery just want it enough so it’s really nice and moist. I even got my fork ready because this one I’m going to taste, it smells too good for me not to taste. And you guys know me I love to garnish which is a little bit of parsley now it’s time to taste. Now, the key to this is to get a little bit of the beef and the potato in the same bite. In this way you could mix them together really nicely so just cut that in half. That’s very good. This is delicious. This is one example of home style cooking that you’re going to have to try at home it’s great.
So here we are at the end of another delicious meal. We’ve made—or olive oil cabbage dolma, a hardy and healthy spinach soup and a favorite of mine growing up with what my mother calls maldum or what Turkish people would know as—Turkish cuisine is so easy, don’t be overwhelmed with all the ingredient. It’s really quite simple and it’s so versatile. You can always make it your own. So until next time, enjoy your meal.
