EwE - Greek-Style Spinach Rice - It Isn't Easy Being Green
For Eating with Ellie this week, I chose the theme of It Isn't Easy Being Green. Ellie has lots of fabulous vegetable recipes in her books, so I decided to choose something along that line for a side dish.
I chose Ellie's Greek-Style Spinach Rice from Weeknight Wonders. In theory, it sounded great - brown rice and frozen spinach cooked with tomato paste and onion, with optional feta. I left out the feta but otherwise made the recipe as written.
Unusually for me with an Ellie recipe, I didn't take to this dish. It was too bland for my liking - a little too close to rabbit food. Unfortunately, it won't be a repeat.
