This recipe for a delicious and easy rice side dish came from Michael at Gail’s Recipe Swap, and I’ve fiddled with it a little. Although I don’t get to eat rice often, this one looks so tasty I have to put it here for safe keeping when I get to splurge! :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Over medium heat in a saucepan, combine the rice, broth, and water, and bring to a boil.
  2. Cover, reduce the heat to medium low, and let simmer for 15 to 18 minutes or until the rice has absorbed the liquid; transfer to a serving bowl and keep warm.
  3. In a skillet over medium heat, melt the olive oil and butter together, then add the onion, mushrooms, and garlic for 5 to 7 minutes, then stir in the lemon juice and oregano.
  4. Add the spinach and pepper, then sprinkle with the sherry and toss until the spinach is slightly wilted; remove from heat.
  5. Add the crumbled feta and toss until the cheese begins to melt.
  6. Add to the cooked rice, toss well, and serve immediately.

This was awesome. I followed the recipe except that I didn't have any dry sherry so I used rice wine. We loved it and it wasn't too salty from the feta; it was just the right amount of salt. I didn't have to add any and I usually DO. Thanks for posting!

Delicious and easy recipe. I did make some changes by adding some diced red bell peppers and mozerella cheese (did not have fetta on hand).Also I sauted the vegetables with the rice then added the stock and finished off cooking it in the oven. Next time I will try it with the fetta and maybe some chopped fresh tomato.
