Rice is a staple in our house. We have it a few times a week. It's gluten free, cheap, filling, easy to make and very versatile. This Parmesan Spinach Rice is one of my favorite way to make it. When ever I have extra spinach or find it on sale I use it up in this rice. The best part is my kids don't even complain about eating it. It shrinks down so much they don't even really notice it. So if you are trying to get more veggies in your diet give this recipe a try! Yum!
