Tom and I have eaten a lot of white rice over the years. I swear he would live off of white rice and chicken if it wasn’t for me. Actually, I know he would because he has admitted that to me in the past. White rice though bores me. I just can’t bring myself to eat a lot of it. Usually when I want to spice up some white rice we make our fried rice recipe. That though you cannot eat all the time (even though I wish I could). So, I needed to come up with another way to make white rice so I would eat it again. I came up with this recipe which, also sneaks in some vegetables. It’s a great way to get creative with rice and have your veggies too. Enjoy!
1 cup spinach
2 tablespoons parsley
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup grated cheese
In a pot cook the white rice according to package directions. Set aside cooked white rice. In a food processor place the spinach, parsley and garlic cloves. Season with salt and pepper. Pulse in food processor until the spinach is chopped very finely.
Add the spinach mixture to the rice. Mix to combine. Top with grated cheese and mix again.
Serve warm and Enjoy!
