      We loved this dish! We used uncle ben's wild rice, so we cooked that separately (according to the directions on the box) from the spinach mixture, and then put them together to bake. It turned out excellent, and is a dish that we can't wait to make again!!

      This was very, very good! Because in step 7 you'd mentioned spreading the rice on top of the spinach I assumed that after step 1 the rice should be put to one side. Rather than a main dish I cooked a smaller amount as a base for a salmon dish and it is great with seafood.

      I don't have a jelly mould that can go in the oven, so after step 5, I simply mixed all the ingredients together and put them in a covered casserole dish in the oven for 10 minutes. I used baby spinach leaves (one of my staple ingredients) and 1 sweet red pepper instead of the chilie pepper (personal taste preference), and I added 4 cloves of chopped garlic to the onion. The cumin gave this a delicious aroma and flavour. An easy to make dish which we all enjoyed.
