Rice With Spinach - Greek created by Leggy Peggy

This looks yummy, and soon I'll have a garden full of spinach to use!! So, until the spinach grows a bit more, I won't be able to try it...It comes from "The Best Recipes in the World" by Mark Bittman.

  • Put 2 tablespoons of the oil in a medium saucepan with a lid over medium heat. A minute later, add the rice along with some salt and pepper and cook, stirring, for about a minute. Add the stock, reduce the heat to low, and cover. Cook for about 15 minutes, or until the rice is done.
  • Meanwhile, put the remaining oil in a deep skillet over medium-high heat. A minute later, add the spinach and some salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until it wilts. Continue to cook until most of the liquid is gone; stir in the nutmeg and the lemon.
  • Toss the cooked rice with the butter and put on a platter.
  • Stir the cheese into the spinach, them immediately put on top of the rice and serve.

    Easy and delicious! I used frozen spinach, but the flavors here paired well with my Greek inspired dinner. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

    Oh yum, oh yum, oh yum. I use a slightly different approach to steaming rice, so I put the baby spinach on top of the rice as it finished its steaming (off the heat). I then stirred in the lemon and nutmeg, and added the feta on top. Never, ever have I thought of adding spinach and feta to rice, and now I can't get it out of my mind. Great combo! Served with Greek-style green beans and lamb shanks.
