A simple and easy way to serve rice and get your vitamins too!
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 cup long grain rice (I use Basmati)
  • 1 medium tomato, coarsely chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 or 3 handfuls fresh baby spinach
  • 1 cup beef consommé or beef stock
  • 1 cup water
  1. In a large pot heat olive oil and sauté onion, garlic and rice until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Add tomato, bay leaf and spinach. Stir until all ingredients are well mixed and spinach has started to wilt. Add stock, reduce heat and cover. Cook 15-20 minutes until all liquid is absorbed and rice is cooked. Serve immediately.
The Culinary Chase’s Note: The last 5 minutes of cooking I turn the heat off and let the rice sit. The rice will still continue to cook but should not dry out. For added flavor, once the rice has cooked, crumble feta cheese over the rice and gently stir. Enjoy!
