Spinach-Rice Casserole

I really liked the idea of rice combined with spinach and eggs, so I immediately executed the recipe. Although the recipe is Italian, Parmesan is the only special ingredient and you can successfully replace it with a simple cheese. Spinach goes fresh or frozen, because it is more handy and very good.

It's a recipe that goes as an independent dish or garnish, we served it with yogurt and a salad, it went great, even the kids ate it very well.

Ingredients

Rice
250 g
or 1 cup
Water
2 cups
Spinach
400 g
a bag of frozen spinach
Egg
3 pieces
White onion
1 piece
Butter
20 g
Bread crumbs
2 tbsp
I replaced it with wheat semolina
Salt and pepper
1 tsp
+ nutmeg to taste
Parmesan
50 g
or yellow cheese

Step by step

1

Wash the rice well, bring the water to a boil in a saucepan. When it starts to boil add the rice, a little salt, mix well and let it boil until the rice absorbs all the water and is ready.

Here goes 1 volume of rice to 2 volumes of water, and I used plain rice with round grain.

Let it cool well after it is ready to boil.

If you have rice left over after a meal or garnish, it is even more convenient to reuse it in this meal.

2

Cook the onion in a pan with 10g of butter, when it is lightly browned, add the spinach well drained and thawed. Leave for another 5 minutes, stir and turn off the heat.

If you have forgotten to defrost it, put it as it is and leave it to soften.

3

Take a deep oven tray, mine was about 15x20cm.

Grease it with butter and sprinkle on the bottom and walls of the tray with breadcrumbs or semolina.

4

In a bowl, place the cooled rice and spinach with the onion.

Stir and be careful not to get hot.

5

Add eggs, salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste.

6

Mix very well, so that the rice and spinach lumps are not opened in the pudding.

7

Transfer the composition to the previously prepared oven tray, distribute it evenly and press well with a spoon.

8

Sprinkle on top with grated Parmesan cheese.

9

And put the tray in the preheated oven at 200 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

10

After it has browned and is ready, close the oven but leave the pudding there for another 5 minutes.

Then take it out and it is ready to serve.

11

Serve it plain, with yogurt and a salad, or as a garnish for a steak.

Good appetite!
