Add an extra-special touch to your meal tonight with this fast, easy and fresh spinach rice recipe. Here, CANILLA® Extra Long Grain Rice is infused with the delicious, savory flavor of spinach, cilantro, onions and garlic as it simmers on the stove. Stir in cheese for a creamy, elegant rice side dish.
1 pkg. (10 oz.)
frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained (about 1 cup)
small onion, roughly chopped (about ½ cup)
packed fresh cilantro
GOYA® Minced Garlic, or 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
GOYA® Cubitos Chicken Bouillon mixed 2 cups water, or 2 cups chicken broth
Add 1 cup water, spinach, onion, cilantro, and garlic to bowl of blender. Puree until mixture is bright green and smooth, about 2 minutes; set aside.
Heat oil in medium saucepan over medium-high heat; add rice. Cook, stirring occasionally, until rice is coated in oil, about 1 minute. Add reserved spinach mixture and chicken bouillon mixture to pot. Stir to distribute rice evenly. Bring liquid to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, covered, until rice is tender and water is absorbed, about 25 minutes.
Remove pot from heat. Gently stir in cheese. Serve warm.
