This is a simple side-dish devised by a former girl friend about 20 years ago.

I used half butter, half olive oil, chicken stock and about three times as much spinach as called for. With a little extra time to cook the rice, it turned out well and was a good side dish along some spicy chicken breasts. Thank you Toby Jermain for posting.
