"My mother and I get recipe ideas from watching TV cooking shows and looking through magazines, then substitute ingredients we prefer," says Amy Brosman of Kansas City, Missouri. "That's how we created this tasty and colorful side dish," And at 30¢ a serving, it's a bargain, too.


  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 2-1/4 cups water
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed
  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  1. In a large skillet, saute onion in oil until tender. Add rice and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until rice is tender and water is absorbed. Stir in the spinach, tomatoes, salt and pepper; heat through.

    I love this side dish. I've been making it for years and everyone always remarks how good it is. I usually serve it with grilled salmon.
