READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Roosie

"Jazz up plain old rice with the flavors of Greece. This main-dish casserole gets powerful antioxidents from the spinach and plenty of fiber from the brown rice." - From the Prevention Magazine book, "Natural Healing Guide 2002"

Top Review by Anton Ego

For those with a wheat allergy, this is a solution, but only a partial. The taste, if cooked as directed, is hollow. It has none of the flair of spano and other greek dishes. Adding nutmeg, some lemon may help, that is if you want something other than a thin taste.Experiment, then post your results fo rthe rest of us.
