This little dish came about because I had a bowl of cooked rice in the fridge and didn't fancy what DH was eating. Was sooooo tasty. Next time I plan to add celery and possibly some herbs. The simplicity and speed appealed to me but the taste just knocked me out.


  1. Heat oil and fry onions until translucent, add chopped bacon and fry until well done, add mushrooms until golden around the edges.
  2. Throw in the spinach, stir.
  3. Add thecooked rice and stir.
  4. Shake in enough garlic powder to taste.
  5. Stir well.
  6. Finally, sprinkle with parmesan.

I agree this dish is very tasty. I was using it for a side-dish so I adjusted some of the ingredients. I cut the bacon, mushrooms & spinach in 1/2 and increased the rice abit. I ended up cooked the bacon 1st so I didn't need any extra oil to cook the remaining items. I'm always looking for good recipes to use up left-over cooked rice from the night before & this is one of the keepers, thanks for sharing.

delicious way of 'fancying up' your leftover rice! I followed Susan's suggestion and added a bit of minced celery and used a fresh garlic clove rather than powder. Followed the rest of the recipe as written. It was wonderful-tasting - very homey and comforting and exactly right for late at night when I had it all alone. This is a really good alternative to the fried rice I usually make with my rice leftovers. A keeper!
