Reviews for Spinach Rice
"This recipe was very tasty and quick. I would make it again using less water and more spices. Maybe add some mushrooms and garlic."
"This is a good side dish. Gets people to eat spinach even tho they wouldn't eat it plain. Could use a little more seasoning - whatever kind you like. Maybe onion powder. I boiled it a few minutes after I added rice."
