The flavor combination of this rice dish will dance on your tongue. It's so Good!!! :o)

I have a low fat version of this on here also, that I posted a couple of years ago...but whenever I make it I always make it this way...so decided to post it this way too. :o)

You can make this without the wild rice, simply don't add it, no need to change anything else.

Also, sometimes I will add chicken to this and make it a meal! ;O)

Enjoy! :o)

How to Make Spinach Feta Rice Combo

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare your rice:
    Wild Rice: In a one quart saucepan, add washed wild rice and water, I like to use half water half broth. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer 45 to 55 minutes or until rice pops open, drain and set aside.

    White Rice: In a 2 quart saucepan, add rice, water and salt. I like to use half water half chicken broth again. (If using all water, add 1/2 tsp salt instead of a 1/4 tsp.) Bring to a boil, cover and simmer 15 minutes. Fluff with fork and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet over medium high heat add olive oil, when hot add onions and mushrooms, stir and cook until onions are tender, add butter. When butter is melted add garlic, oregano and lemon juice. Cook 1 minute add *spinach. When spinach has wilted (if using fresh) or when heated through (if using frozen) add salt and pepper, white and wild rice, half the feta and stir well. When serving sprinkle remaining feta and almonds, if desired, over top of dish.
  3. *If using frozen spinach, rinse and drain well.
