Rice Pilaf with spinach

Penny B


This is a delicious variation of rice pilaf...and adds a bit of nutrition (shh...don't tell the kids). Neither of my kids will eat spinach on its own, but this is their favorite rice

How to Make Rice Pilaf with spinach


  • 1Make rice per package directions.
  • 2When rice is done cooking and ready to set, add the package of baby spinach (don't worry--it will look like a LOT of spinach, but it will be fine) and re-cover.
  • 3Let set covered three or more minutes to steam the spinach.
  • 4Uncover and stir until everything is blended together beautifully (see, I told you the amount of spinach would be reasonable). If needed, re-cover and let steam some more if the spinach is still too separate.
