Printed and saved in my file. This one sounds good as a meal in itself.
Too bad rice as a side dish is so underrated. There are so many good recipes for rice and no one seems to print many of them. I think I'll blog about my favorites, but your spinach and lamb combination sounds terrific.

Rice certainly isn't underrated in my household!! It makes an appearance several times a week here.

Plain, with herbs &/or chopped veggies, saffron-tinted with chilis & beans, wok-fried - you name it, I love it!

Mine too Breezy but most people never seem to think about making rice any way but boiled and buttered. I love the stuff IN dishes as well as a side dish with other ingredients.

Actually, the only time I eat rice just plain "buttered" is if I'm under the weather & want a "comfort meal" of a plain cooked chicken breast with plain buttered rice on the side. Otherwise, it's always jazzed up in some way.

I used to eat a bowl of rice made exactly that way for a snack on a cold winter's night. I loved it that way til I discovered how many calories I was consuming. Takes all the fun out of it, but I agree, buttered rice is truly comfort food.

Oooh - especially if you cook that rice in some chicken broth - homemade or commercial.

I make rice at least a couple times a week, usually as a one-pot meal. I'll be trying this for sure.
