Spinach Rice

I started making this Spinach Rice dish as a replacement for our traditional West Indian rice and beans.  My daughters Zoe and Emily love it!  Give it a try with your kids.  It might be a clever way you can sneak some spinach into their diet.  Healthy eating that tastes great!

Ingredients…

  • 1 Small onion, diced
  • 10 Season peppers, or ½ bell pepper, diced
  • 1 Cup chopped spinach (frozen spinach can be used)
  • 2 Cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Cup long grain rice, rinsed
  • Olive oil to saute
  • 2 Cups coconut milk***
  • 1 Teaspoon thyme
  • Salt to taste

Instructions…

In a medium saucepan saute the peppers and onions over medium heat until translucent, and the garlic and saute for 1 minute.  Add the spinach and saute until heated through.

Next, add the coconut milk and rinsed rice, turn the heat up to high and bring the pot to a boil.  Finally, add the salt and thyme reduce the heat to low cover the pot and cook undisturbed for 20 minutes.

***if you do not like coconut, chicken stock or water can be substituted.
