Curried Spinach & Brown Rice Bake

This is a tasty, soul warming side dish that makes a great starter for two people, too. It's a one-pot deal, so aside from the hour wait that it needs to bake, it's super easy.

I wanted an even easier, one-pot dish, but found that I preferred to stir it all together slowly as it came to a boil. It helped the spinach break apart and the rice to evenly distribute within it.

It seems like a lot of frozen spinach compared to the amount of rice, but it works.

3/4 cup water
1/3 cup brown rice
1 package of frozen chopped spinach
2 cloves garlic, peeled and split in half
1 to 2 tsp salt
1 to 2 tsp curry powder
1 T. butter
1 tsp garam masala, optional,
Cayenne pepper or crushed red pepper flakes to taste, optional

Preheat oven to 350. In an oven-safe sauce pot, combine all ingredients over medium-high heat until boiling, stirring gently and often with a tablespoon to break apart the spinach and distrinute the rice.

Cover tightly with foil and a lid, and bake for one hour. Fluff with fork and stir in some fresh, crakceed black pepper.

This recipe can be doubled. Serve as a side dish, or in bowls as a heart-warming snack.
