Spinach Rice (Gluten Free)


Spinach rice is a flavorful rice dish that I like to make so I can incorporate lots of spinach in the dish in a creative way. It also gives the same  plain rice a new twist.This dish is perfect for a large crowd or for picky eaters.  I prefer to use brown basmati or jasmine rice for this dish.This can be served by itself, with a curry, a tofu dish, or anything your imagination comes up with! Have fun getting creative with this.



Wash and drain brown rice using a colander, set aside. In a food processor process spinach, mint and cilantro. Heat oil in a medium sized saucepan, then add cumin seeds. Cook until seeds start splattering. Add curry powder, cook for one minute while stirring constantly. Then add onions, and cook til translucent. Next, add garlic, ginger, vegetable mixture cook for 4 minutes. Stir in rice, and mix to coat. Add coconut milk, water, and salt. Bring to boil, then reduce heat to simmer until rice is tender. If you want your rice softer, add more water. Fluff with fork and serve.






  1. Michelle,for someone that cannot have anything with coconut milk what would you suggest could be used in its place?
