An ideal side that combines rice with spinach and subtle spices. This is a rushed person's risotto, not as much effort but just as much taste.


Serves: 4 

  • 1 chicken or vegetable stock cube, optional
  • 500g rice
  • 1 pinch salt, to taste
  • 400g spinach
  • 1 dash olive oil, to taste
  • 1 pinch nutmeg, to taste
  • 40g butter
  • 70g Parmesan cheese
  • 1 small onion, diced finely

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Bring a saucepan of water to the boil then add stock cube, rice and salt. Cook for about 15-18 minutes until tender.
  2. Wash the spinach and cook in a dry pan until wilted, squeeze out excess liquid and dice.
  3. Heat a little olive oil in a frypan and saute the onions over a low heat until soft but not coloured. Add your butter and when melted add the spinach; season well and cook for about 5 minutes.
  4. Drain your rice reserving the cooking water. Add to the spinach and cheese. Serve with lots of cheese on top. Add some of the reserved cooking water if a little dry.
