Greek Inspired Rice

17 Apr

My spin on Greek rice using what I had on hand.

Time: 30 minutes                Serves: 4


  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 5 oz baby spinach
  • 2 oz tomato puree
  • 2 cups chicken stock + (as needed)
  • 1/2 cup basmati rice, uncooked
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • salt & pepper to taste

How to make it

  • Heat olive oil over medium heat in large skillet.
  • Add onions and saute until just beginning to brown.
  • Add spinach and give a quick stir.
  • Then, add tomato puree & chicken stock. Bring to a boil.
  • Season with salt, pepper, and oregano. Stir in rice. Cover & reduce heat to low.
  • Cook for about 20-25 minutes until rice is tender. Check every now & then, stirring to make sure nothing sticks to the bottom (this is how rice burns!). Add more chicken stock as necessary throughout cooking process. Also, add more salt & pepper when doing so.

Serve with my Grecian Goddess Pork Chops and Jimmy’s Special Salad.
