Coming at you with another delicious gluten free dish! This pairs perfectly with meats or fish (check out my previous fish recipe) and only requires minimal ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen. Seriously, put onion, garlic, tomatoes, rice, spinach, and chicken stock in a pot and forget about it until it becomes the perfect dish of rice.

In these photos I opted for a short grain brown rice because its my favorite type, but feel free to use white rice, basmati, or whatever you like. I do not recommend sticky rice though!

    I would put the spinach in for a few seconds just before serving

      Hi Micki, I am not a big fan of cooked spinach, what is your reasoning for adding it late?

  • Pat Pat on Jun 09, 2022

    about how long does it take for the liquid to be absorbed?

      I am guessing that you should check that at about 20 minutes.
