3-Ingredient Coconut Spinach Rice Recipe

3-Ingredient Coconut Spinach Rice Recipe
Got leftover rice? Janet D’s Coconut Spinach Rice is a great way to use that leftover rice, and it’s so good, it’s worth cooking extra just to use in this dish. Cooks in a hurry will be glad to know that there are only three ingredients, and it can be mixed and ready for the oven in less than 5 minutes. If there’s a bag of fresh spinach, it just needs to be rough-chopped, although it can be put in just as it comes from the bag if there isn’t time. The only other ingredient is a can of coconut milk which gives the rice an exotic flavor. This is a great side dish for grilled meats, poultry, or fish, since it’s moist, but it also goes with stir-fries or other Asian dishes with a sauce.
Phoenix resident, Janet DeLiberto, an innovative and fabulous cook who is also busy, makes this often since her family loves it and it goes with so many dishes; she graciously shared this recipe so that BellaOnline readers can also enjoy it. The official Hancock tasters were unanimous in awarding 5 stars, and none guessed how easy it is to put together.
