Spinach Rice - Hellenic Style


2-1/2 lbs. Spinach, chopped or cut
1 Onion, large, diced
2 cups Rice, brown, cooked in 3-1/2 cups water
Pepper, black or red (to taste)
Olive Oil, extra virgin (optional)

Begin by placing the water (cold) for the rice in a pot on the stove top and bring to a boil.

While the water is heating, peel and dice the onion and place in a large ceramic baking dish.  Add the pepper.  Traditionally, black pepper is used, but we usually add a red pepper sauce.  Mix well, cover, and cook in a microwave (high heat) or conventional oven (350 degrees F.) until the onions begin to become translucent.

When the water on the stove top comes to a boil, add the rice, cover the pot, and reduce the heat to simmer or low.  Cook until all the water is absorbed.

The spinach for this may be fresh or frozen.

If the spinach is frozen, it may be unpackaged and placed directly in the covered ceramic baking dish, and heated until the spinach is defrosted.  Mix well and continue cooking until the spinach is hot.

If the spinach is fresh, thoroughly wash the spinach, and cut into the desired sized pieces.  Place in the covered ceramic baking dish and cook until the spinach is hot.  Mix occasionally.

Add the cooked rice to the spinach in the covered ceramic baking dish and mix well.  Cook for another 10 to 15 minutes, mixing occasionally to insure that the flavors are thoroughly blended.

When finished cooking, remove the baking dish from the oven and drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil, and mix well.

Serve and enjoy!

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-19)
