Spinach and Vegetables Over Rice With Feta
Laura’s Blog Entry
We are just getting over the stomach flu here – well some of us are over it – and some seem to be just getting it this morning. Poor Neil!
Now that I can face food again, here’s something that I made the other week that was really tasty. The greens are jam packed with vitamins, which is possibly why I only had a mild bout of the flu and poor Mari, a non-greens eater, got the worst of it.
This is a wing-it kind of recipe, so I don’t have exact quantities.
Spinach and Vegetables Over Rice with Feta
1/2 cup uncooked rice
1/2 large shallot (If you have onion on hand instead, a tablespoon chopped would work)
Garlic? Maybe? I can’t remember.
1/2 bag fresh spinach – I think it was a 9 oz bag
Crumbled feta cheese
Cook rice following package directions. While that is cooking, thinly slice the shallots and saute in about a tablespoon of olive oil in a medium to large skillet or saute pan. Season with salt and pepper. When the shallots are tender, put in some minced garlic. I think I put in garlic. If I didn’t I should have. Immediately toss in the spinach leaves. Let it soften for a minute and then gently stir. Continue until spinach is all softened. Season again with salt and pepper.
Place a serving of rice on a plate. Top with the spinach mixture. Crumble feta cheese on the top. I ate mine with a side of baked sweet potato.
Makes 2 servings.
