Super tasty. Good amount of protein, my husband loved it.
This really hit the spot! I can't find tofu of any variety very easily, so I used a soft & mild feta cheese (and therefore reduced the salt by 1/2). I also used chopped fresh spinach instead of frozen, and cooked it down a bit when I added it to the saute pan with the onions and rice. Simple and tasty! Thanks for the recipe.
This was pretty good! I love rice and spinach, and this is a quick and easy dinner. It reheated nicely, too, so I was able to eat it for a week. Thanks for submitting!
