Spinach Rice with Parmesan

Try this next time you're looking for a jazzy side dish to serve beside a protein.

Rather than the usual pasta or plain rice, add some fresh spinach, egg, and parmesan cheese to some prepared grain and bake until golden. There were no leftovers here.

Spinach Rice with Parmesan

1 cup rice, cooked and cooled slightly

1 egg, beaten

1 handful baby spinach, stems trimmed

3 Tbs grated parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a small baking dish or oven-proof bowl, toss the spinach with the warm rice. Add the egg and 2 Tbs of the parmesan and mix well. Smooth the top and sprinkle with the remaining 1 Tbs parmesan.
Bake for 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
